The Bee, Sacramento, CA, 5/22/91

Sunday, September 1, 1991

Tied up and robbed several months earlier, a 70-year-old Sacramento, Calif., woman decided she would be ready and purchased a handgun. When two men--apparently the same robbers--kicked in the door and pulled the telephone wires from the wall, the woman got her gun and started shooting. The men fled, but one collapsed in the driveway with a mortal wound. Police found masks, latex gloves, a police scanner and a gun on the dead man.
