Michael DeFrancesco, who lives on the second floor of his
father's St. Louis, Mo., home, heard noises in the first floor
apartment occupied by the senior DeFrancesco, who was away. Arming
himself with a shotgun, DeFrancesco went downstairs and surprised

group to surrender they fled. One blast seriously wounded one of the
bandits. The armed citizen chased the other two into an alley. One
of the thugs escaped, but DeFrancesco marched the other to the
apartment to await an ambulance and police.
