From the moment two young men walked into Gary Lee's Market one
afternoon, the owner's wife, Cathy Lee, knew they were trouble. She
noticed the pair avoided eye contact with store employees and the
hooded jackets they wore were too warm for the season. Her fears
proved right moments later when one of the men pulled a gun and
aimed it at a store clerk. Cathy had alerted her husband that there
was trouble, and he emerged from the back of the store with a 9 mm
pistol. He aimed in the direction of the robbers and fired. The pair
of would-be bandits flew from the store, empty-handed. Three
Brunswick, Ga., men were arrested in connection with the attempted
robbery. Store proprietor Lee said he felt he had to stand up to the
gunmen. "When they had the gun, they were in control, but that
changed when I came out with my gun," he said.
