The Arkansas Democrat, Little Rock, AR, 3/18/82

Sunday, August 1, 1982

Little Rock, Ark., pharmacist Danny Matson had "a bad feeling" when a man walked into his store. His feeling got worse when the man pulled a .22 cal. pistol and demanded narcotics. But instead of complying, Matson retrieved a .44 Mag. revolver and in an exchange of gunfire, killed the robber. The local sheriff called the killing "perfectly justified," and added, "let this be a warning" to armed robbers.
