On a Tuesday afternoon, Rockford, Ill., barber William Cross
was cutting hair as he has for 34 years, when two masked men entered
his shop. One man pointed a gun at Cross and said, "Give it up!"
When Cross asked what was happening, the armed man fired a shot,
just missing the barber's head. Cross responded by reaching into a
drawer for his own gun. His first shot knocked the robber to the
floor, but he was still holding onto his gun. Cross then tried to
shoot the gun out of the suspect's hand and thinks he was
successful, as the man finally dropped his gun. "That's not a good
feeling, looking down a gun barrel," Cross said later. Winnebago
County sheriff's deputies took the injured gunman into custody and
they arrested a second man who was running away from the scene. The
barber was shocked when police told him the name of the wounded
would-be robber. Cross had been cutting his hair for years.
