Shooting suspect James Michael Smith made a poor choice of
hideouts one afternoon when he ducked into Tom Campbell's Standard
Wilson Glass Co. in Knoxville, Tenn. Attempting to evade police,
Smith ran into a supply room at the business where Campbell caught
him reaching into his pocket. Campbell drew his .40-cal. pistol,
held it against Smith and told him not to move. "He came awful close
to meeting his maker," said Campbell. Police were following closely
behind and took Smith into custody. "I am a glass merchant that
would like this trash off the street," Campbell said. "I was glad I
was able to help."
