Peter Ramsey returned to his Shreveport, La., home to find a
strange car backed into his driveway and his back door open.
Investigating, Ramsey heard burglars inside and darted to his pickup
to get his .223 cal. carbine. One intruder made a break for the car
and escaped, even though Ramsey, who had been joined by neighbor
Roger Johnson, shot out a rear tire. An accomplice then tried to
sneak out of the house but was apprehended by Ramsey and Johnson who
held him for the authorities.
