The Commercial Appeal, Memphis, TN, 5/30/82

Sunday, August 1, 1982

Lee Stevens, 65, had spent more than 40 years in the backwoods as a trapper. So when a trio of young hoodlums broke into his Memphis apartment and threatened him with a pistol and sawed-off shotgun, his instincts came in handy. After one criminal knocked him over a chair, he drew a .25 automatic and opened fire, killing one intruder and putting his accomplices to flight.
