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.
