World-Herald, Omaha, NE

Sunday, January 1, 1961

Harry Shrago stood just outside the door of his Omaha grocery and heard daughter Florence shriek from inside the store when two men leveled guns at her. Shrago, who carries a gun as closing time approaches, dashed inside, was grabbed by the hair by one of the bandits, broke free, and pulled out his revolver. "The guy lunged at me," said Shrago, "and I fired at him." The bandit, a long-time felon, dropped with a cal. .32 bullet between his eyes and the accomplice fled amid a hail of shots.
