The Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville, FL, 5/11/88

Monday, August 1, 1988

An armed man carrying what later turned out to be a BB gun walked into Linsey Calhoun's Jacksonville, Fla., shop and threatened to kill him unless he handed over the store's cash. Instead, Calhoun trapped the robber in a swinging door and fired a shot from his handgun, killing the intruder. Calhoun was not charged. "If you walk in with a gun to a merchant's place of business, you assume the risk," the state attorney's chief assistant said.
