A 65-year-old newspaper delivery man was in his Oakland,
Calif., garage preparing for his daily run when a 19-year-old armed
ruffian suddenly came inside demanding money, according to police.
The younger man apparently had not benefitted from the positive
influence of his father's former position as an Oakland police
officer and instead had chosen to make his living the 'easy' way.
His choice of victim was equally poor, however, because the elderly
man was intent on self-defense. The resident, gun to his head,
quickly found himself backed against a workbench, but managed to
retrieve his revolver from under a stack of papers. His single,
fatal shot sent the attacker staggering outside and prompted two
accomplices to flee the scene. The delivery man later told
authorities that he feared for his life and for those of his
grandchildren who were sleeping inside the home.
