Portland, Wisconsin, gun shop owner William Ripley was
suspicious about the two youths in his store asking "silly
questions." When one announced a holdup and pulled a gun, Ripley
drew his own .22 pistol and fired. "We both fired at the same
time," says Ripley. "I dodged, and he missed by about 6". I have
powder burns on my face." Ripley's shot went through the robber's
cheek and lodged in his neck. Police nabbed the wounded robber and
a second suspect and later found the stolen car they were driving.
