Five months after a clerk was wounded in a robbery, an armed
man entered the Milwaukee, Wis., convenience store late one night
and demanded money. The woman behind the counter complied, but as
the robber prepared to leave, she tripped an alarm, grabbed a
handgun from under the counter and fired a single shot. The
would-be robber and an accomplice fled, but police later arrested a
suspect with a gunshot wound to the chest.
