Juan Perez entered a Philadelphia grocery store to buy a jar
of pickles, but was lucky to emerge a short time later with his
life. Perez watched in horror as gunmen stormed in, put a gun to his
head, robbed him of $20 and forced him to lie on the floor. That's
when the ruffians went after the store's owner whose wife and
children were on the premises. As Perez lay fear-stricken on the
floor, he heard one of the would-be robbers tell the merchant,
"Either give me the money or I will shoot your child." At that, the
merchant brought his own gun to bear and opened fire on his two
assailants. In the ensuing battle, Perez was wounded in the shoulder
by one of the armed robbers and one gunman was killed. Perez later
commented of the merchant's actions flatly, "He was protecting his
family." Another neighbor said, "I think he did the right thing. He
had to protect his wife and children."
