A newspaper carrier saved the day, and a man's life, when he shot a
man holding a gun to the head of a Birmingham, Ala., convenience
store clerk during a robbery. Sam Harper was outside a Chevron
convenience store filling newspaper racks when he saw a man put on
a wig and burst into the store, screaming at clerk Tom Burnett and
pointing a shotgun at Burnett's head. Harper acted immediately by
drawing his own gun, entering the store and firing three times at
the gunman. The wounded robber dropped his shotgun but ran toward
Harper, who shot him twice more. "I just reacted," Harper said. "It
was total chaos, and it was pretty terrifying." Burnett credits
Harper with saving his life. "I was looking down the barrel of a
shotgun, and a shotgun don't miss," he said.
