A Richmond, Va., woman was upstairs with a friend when the
doorbell rang and moments later her teenage daughter screamed, "You
can take anything I got." Shirley Seaborne grabbed her revolver and
rushed downstairs to confront three armed men holding her daughter
at gunpoint. Seaborne and her friend opened fire, wounding two of
the three attackers. The trio was later captured by police when
they sought medical treatment.
