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.

nearby. The decision doubtless saved his life on a recent evening
when a gunman entered the store around closing time and demanded

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."
