One moment it was a routine morning at Gregory Morris's
Inglewood, California, furniture store. The next moment it was
"like one of them shoot-'em-up movies." Morris and an employee
fired at least 20 shots defending their lives against an armed
robber who threatened to kill them. He fired 13 times. "I'm on the
phone with 911 and I'm screaming for help," says Morris. "There's
bullets all over the place. It's like pop, pop, pop, pop, pop."
The battle ended with the thug prone with a bullet through his
cheek. Morris and his employee were unharmed. Police say the
criminal had served less than three months of a two-year prison
sentence for robbery.
