A Kent, Wash., jewelry store owner decided he'd had enough and
wasn't going to take it anymore. Chuck Hohner waited on a customer
one Friday for about a half hour when the man said he'd be back on
Saturday to make a purchase. When the man returned the next day,
the jeweler opened the secured door to let him in. Then the man
pulled a revolver and forced Hohner to the back of the store where
he tied him up with plastic ties and made him lie face down on the
floor. "A pretty vulnerable feeling," said Hohner. "My life was
really on the line." The jeweler was able to get his hands free,
but waited until the robber was occupied pulling merchandise from
the showcases. Then Hohner sprang into action, jumping to his feet,
grabbing a shotgun and firing at the robber. The suspect fired four
shots at Hohner, but the owner wasn't injured. "I just started
letting loose toward the door" as the crook made his way toward the
exit, Hohner recounted. "Cock it, shoot it, take a few steps." The
robber escaped, but may have been injured. Hohner said he was
scared, but could not just lie there. "I come from that old school
that says you take care of your family, your property, your
neighbors and your country."
