The Sunday Stanly News & Press, Albemarle, NC, 6/6/93

Wednesday, September 1, 1993

Thinking about lunch and the poison ivy on his feet, Eddie Roscoe stopped by his house in Albemarle, North Carolina, and interrupted a burglary. Two men fled, but the third headed toward a bedroom, with Roscoe in pursuit. Cornered, the burglar turned and fired a shot, wounding Roscoe in the hand and side. After a struggle Roscoe picked up a shotgun, loaded it and held the would-be crook for police, who also apprehended the accomplices.
