In a Harbor City, Calif., liquor store, a man waited quietly
for owner Robert Drake to finish talking on the phone. After Drake
hung up, the man pulled a gun, scooped money from the till, and then
backed towards the front door still pointing the pistol. At this
point someone entered the store. Drake snatched a gun from under the
counter and fired at the robber who fell seriously wounded.
