James and Mary Little were watching television in their
Salem, Mass., apartment when an intoxicated man armed with a 12"
butcher knife broke in. When the man said he was going to "get
them," James Little pulled a shotgun out from under the bed, pointed
it at the stranger and ordered him out. The man fled but was later
arrested by police.
