A man in Queens, N.Y., rescued his teen-age son from a
"mangy looking" black pit bull with the help of his 9 mm handgun.
Robert Regent and some friends had been riding bikes when a pit bull
began barking and chasing them. "I was really scared," he said. "You
could see he was sick and a big, nasty dog." When Regent realized he
could not outrun the dog on his bike, he pulled out a cell phone
and, with the dog grabbing his leg, called his father, Ernest. "I
was really disturbed, hearing him screaming and panicking," said the
elder Regent who dialed 911, then grabbed his 9 mm handgun out of
his safe and raced off to save his son. When he arrived, the pit
bull, startled by the sound of his car, let go. Robert then climbed
on top of the car to get away. Regent retrieved his gun from his
trunk. "The dog looked at me, then charged," he said. "I stepped
back, pulled the gun and fired."
