Two desperate fugitives were on the loose in Enfield, North
Carolina, after allegedly robbing a convenience store and killing
Police Sgt. Tonya Gillikin. Thankfully, residents Charles and Hazel
Rives were prepared. The elderly couple answered their doorbell at
5:40 one morning to a man who said that his car broke down and that
he wanted to come inside. Charles Rives, who had a .25-cal. pistol
in his pocket, simply said "no," but moments later, the man tried to
force his way in. When Rives' gun failed to fire, his wife stepped
into view with a .22-cal. revolver and warned, "I'll blow you away."
That was enough to cause the intruder and his accomplice to flee
through the couple's garden, leaving a trail for police.
Five-and-a-half hours later, the pair was in custody.
