The Examiner, San Francisco, CA, 8/13/82

Friday, October 1, 1982

Elmer Lucy and his wife awoke to find a man bashing in the windows of their pickup truck parked outside their San Francisco home. Mrs. Lucy went to the front door so she could see the criminal through an iron grille. But the hoodlum saw her and grabbed her through the grille. As the man banged his wife's head against the metal, Lucy ran downstairs and retrieved his .38 revolver. He pointed it at the man and ordered him to surrender. When the intruder advanced on him instead, Lucy shot him.
