When two holdup men entered a pawnshop outside Ft. Campbell,
Ky., proprietor Andrew F. King told the one with the gun, "Son, you
can't get away with it. They'll get you sooner or later." Then, as
the armed member came through a gate to go behind the counter, King
seized a pistol from a shelf and fired. The mortally wounded bandit
fell to the floor and police quickly apprehended the fleeing
companion and the driver of their getaway car.
