Marty and Angelique Hite were standing in the parking lot of
the Raleigh, North Carolina, Pizza Hut where Angelique is a manager
when they noticed a man wearing a mask, gloves, dark clothes and
holding a pistol approaching from the darkness. The Hites hurried
back into the restaurant and attempted to close and lock the door,
but were hampered when the robber shoved the barrel of his gun into
the opening. He threatened to kill them, at which time, Marty, a
concealed-carry permit holder, pulled his .38 from a hip pocket and
shot the assailant. The wounded man fled to some nearby woods where
he was discovered by police an hour later. Police declined to
charge Marty Hite, citing his right to defend himself. Many in the
community also applauded Hite's actions.
