A Forest Hills, Tenn., man shot and wounded two masked burglars
after they broke into his home. Roy Luckett was awakened about 2
a.m. when his burglar alarm activated. He picked up his wife's
.38-cal. revolver loaded with 'snake shot' and searched the house.
Upon hearing a noise in the furnace room he opened the door and
discovered two shadowy figures skulking in the darkness. According
to police, the suspects were wearing masks and armed with rifles.
Luckett fired at the men, emptying the gun. He then ran upstairs to
get his .45-cal. pistol. Meanwhile, the pair of bandits tried to
force open Luckett's garage door so they could escape. They fired
14 shots from at least one rifle into Patsy Lucketts sport-utility
vehicle before making their escape. The pair was later arrested
when they sought medical aid. Luckett says he has no idea why the
bandits didnt leave when his alarm sounded. "They were lucky I
didn't take the .45," he said. "No telling what would have
happened. God just guided me through that night."
