Accountant Merlann Bechtel's heart sank as she watched a
robbery unfold on video surveillance in the back of the jewelry
store where she worked. Three men one wearing a ski mask and armed
with a gun entered the business in Lower Paxton Township, Pa.,
announced a robbery and began strong-arming employees and smashing
display cases. Bechtel's valiant attempt to help her co-workers drew
a hail of fire from the gunman, said police, but she ultimately got
the drop on the crook after meeting him face to face. Firing twice
from her own gun, she shot the man in the abdomen, ending the
horrific ordeal. Fleeing suspects dropped off their partner at an
area hospital and were later arrested along an Interstate. "We are
allowed to defend ourselves against others when deadly force is used
or threatened," said Harrisburg attorney Alan Michael Ross.
