When 62-year-old Perry Johns of Pensacola, Florida, answered
a knock at his front door one morning, he found a female
acquaintance asking to use his telephone. Once inside, the woman
asked Johns for money, a request she reinforced by pulling a gun.
The scene sent a friend of Johns, who had been visiting, running
from the house to summon police. After briefly chasing him, the
woman went back inside and ordered Johns to drive her and a
companion to a bank money machine to make a with- drawal. But as
they stepped outside, Johns grabbed a gun from behind the door and
fired several shots, wounding and sending the woman to the ground.
Like her companion, she escaped, but was captured shortly thereafter
to face charges of home-invasion robbery, aggravated assault with a
firearm and kidnaping.
