As he was locking his San Francisco, Calif., grocery for the
night, Gene Hui saw four young men charging him. He jumped into his
pickup, but the gang closed in and yanked the grocer and a waiting
friend to the street. Beating Hui with a bottle, a pair of the thugs
tried to wrest a briefcase containing the day's receipts from him.
But Hui countered with a drawn derringer and shot and injured them.
Police arrested two suspects shortly thereafter when they sought
treatment at a local hospital.
