The Times, Shreveport, LA, 1/25/81

Wednesday, April 1, 1981

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.
