Gene Case was preparing to do landscaping work outside an
apartment complex when he noticed a crazed man who had been in a
dispute with residents. Fearing a dire situation, Case retrieved a
gun from a locked console in his truck before the man yanked a
medical monitor away from an 80-year-old woman nearby and, according
to witnesses, grabbed a 2-year- old-girl from her mother's arms.
Case yelled at the man throughout the ordeal, warning him to stop.
Finally, fearing for the girl's life, Case told the would-be
kidnapper that if he didn't release the child he would be killed.
The man complied and Case then held him at bay until police arrived.
The man was arrested for robbery by force of fear, kidnapping,
indecent exposure and assault on a police officer. Case said he had
applied for a right-to-carry permit soon after the Oklahoma Self
Defense Act became law on Jan. 1, 1996.
