A Jacksonville, Fla., store owner, E.J. Whitney, heard
screams coming from a neighboring variety store owned by 2 women.
Grabbing a pistol, Whitney rushed next door to find 2 armed bandits.
One was holding a mailman as a shield, and the other was crouching
in a corner aiming a gun at Whitney. Whitney fired once at the
crouching bandit and the man toppled over seriously wounded. The
thug holding the postman told Whitney to "go ahead and shoot".
Instead, Whitney ran outside and began calling for help. The bandit
knocked his hostage to the floor and fled.
