After losing nearly everything to Hurricane Andrew, Dade
County, Fla., resident Bart Sanfillipo was serious when he put up a
sign in his front yard warning looters he would shoot. Sanfillipo,
his wife and an insurance adjuster were tallying the damage when an
armed bandit leaped from a van and fired a shotgun blast over their
heads. Sanfillipo responded with his .44, hitting the young thug in
the head at 30 ft. "Score one for the good guys," a police detective
said of the incident.
