Friday, March 1, 1963

Forced to lie on the floor while a gun-toting bandit rifled his cash drawer and fled, a Houston, Tex., grocery store owner, Robert Way, raised up to see the armed robber starting back towards the store. Way snatched a pistol from under the counter and went out after him. When the thug raised his gun, Way fired three times. The bandit was killed instantly.
