In Spokane, Wash., as John J. Reeder prepared to close his
tavern, the sole customer clubbed him with a bottle and ordered him
to a rear room while he looted the place. Reeder went to the rear,
grabbed his 12-ga. shotgun from its resting place, and fired one
blast at his assailant. The felon hobbled out the door and police
found him prostrate in nearby bushes.
