One of Phil Carter's Tallahassee, Florida, neighbors was
describing the car she had seen in his driveway earlier in the day
when his home was burglarized when she pointed to his house and
said, "As a matter of fact, there it is in your driveway." Sure

attempted to block the green Ford Mustang. He then jumped halfway
through the escaping bandit's vehicle, one hand on the steering

the .270, slid from the car, and took aim at the vehicle, shooting
out three of the four tires. The car crashed into a tree with the
passenger spilling out the door in surrender. The driver pushed on
and managed to escape on his vehicle's rims, but Carter held the
accomplice for police. Police were still searching for the second
