Seventy-one-year-old Lee Carter had operated his Four Oaks,
North Carolina, pharmacy in relative peace for a decade before
coming face-to-face with a gun-wielding bandit 15 years ago.
Following that incident, Carter began keeping a .22-cal. handgun
nearby. The decision doubtless saved his life on a recent evening
when a gunman entered the store around closing time and demanded
Valium, morphine and other drugs. In the ensuing gun battle, Carter
took one bullet, but managed to inflict several gunshot wounds on
the would-be robber, sending him to the hospital in much worse
condition. Carter's longtime friend said later, "That is one
criminal they don't have to worry about catching."
