Syracuse, N.Y., pizza shop owner Vito Tauro was confronted
by a man toting a sawed-off, double-barrelled shotgun who demanded
cash. Opening his cash register, Tauro pulled out his licensed
pistol instead of money and fired; the robber fled. Police said no
charges would be filed against the shop owner in the incident.
