Sharonda McMurray was working at a Norcross, Georgia, deli
when her former boyfriend charged into the business in a rage and
began repeatedly stabbing her with a knife. Customer Dennis Benton
tackled the assailant, suffering a cut himself before the suspect
broke free and ran outside. NRA Life Member Myron Petro, also a
patron at the time of the attack, followed, noted the license plate
number of the suspect's car, and retrieved his own handgun from his
vehicle. Moments later, the attacker returned to the deli with
another knife and began stabbing McMurray again. Petro ordered the
man to drop his weapon, but the knife-wielding attacker instead
charged Petro, who shot him five times, killing him.
