After robbing a New Orleans, La., drugstore, a gunman made
his escape by bus, not realizing that store manager Donald Hetrick
and a cashier were pursuing him in a car. When the robber
disembarked after a six-block ride, he was quickly disarmed by
Hetrick, who held him at gunpoint until police arrived.
