The Sun-Times, Chicago, IL

Sunday, December 1, 1985

Staying late in his Chicago store one night, George Perez watched as five men smashed a window and entered the store. The store owner drew his registered handgun and ordered the men to leave, but instead they advanced menacingly. Perez then fired and chased them off. One would-be burglar still clutching stolen goods was found dead outside. Police said Perez acted in self-defense.
