Bobby Wolfe was locking the front door of his Moon Lake,
Miss., store one night when a man came around the icebox near the
door, pointed a gun and demanded money. "He had a gun in his hand,
and the other hand was over his face," Wolfe recalled. The
storekeeper dropped and pulled a, 38-cal. revolver from his pocket.
"We think the robbers shot first and Mr. Wolfe returned fire;
'stated Cuohoma County Sheriff Andrew Thompson of the exchange that
followed. When Wolfe took off running for his nearby home, he
encountered a second gunman who began firing at him. "He shot two or
three times, and I shot one more time; 'said Wolfe. Within five
minutes of the robbery, one gunman was dead, Wolfe was wounded. and
police picked up three suspects-one of whom was mortally
wounded-making a getaway Wolfe later said of the men, whom he
recognized, "... I'm sure they intended to kill me because they know
I'd recognize them."
