In Maplewood, N.J., gas station operator John Gardner, Sr., was knifed on the arm by one of two bandits who then ordered him to clean out the till. Gardner whipped out a pistol and shot his assailant in the chest. Both men took flight and escaped. When the critically wounded bandit sought aid in a Newark hospital, police took him in custody for the Gardner felony and held him as a suspect in two earlier robberies.
