A pair of thugs started beating Woodrow Wilson Glanton of
Newark, N.J.; they took his wallet, his money and his car keys. But
the 69-year-old Glanton drew a .25 automatic and opened fire,
hitting one of the criminals in the chest, killing him. The other
robber was wounded by an irate relative of the dead man when he
reported the crime and killing.
