Gerard Douglas carried his .38-cal. handgun for
self-protection during the overnight shift at a Daytona Beach
convenience store. The habit likely spared the 61-year-old clerk's
life. According to police accounts, an armed suspect entered the
store early one morning demanding money. Douglas initially thought
the man was joking, but when he realized the order wasn't a gag, his
resolve turned gravely serious. When the man set aside his gun to
grab the loot, Douglas recalling a recent robbery that resulted in
the clerk being killed despite handing over the cash drew his gun
and fired a single shot. Authorities later found a college student
in his campus residence bleeding from a gunshot wound to the chest.
