Eric Webster simply couldn't believe this was happening to him
again, but he was going to put a stop to it this time. Webster had
just let his dog outside after finishing an evening card game with
his friends. The dog began barking loudly, and Webster stepped
outside to investigate. As he walked toward his driveway, a masked
man put a gun to his head and announced, "Don't move or I'm gonna'
kill you." Just four months previously, Webster and his wife had
been held at gunpoint while their house was ransacked and their
truck stolen. Webster thought of his wife and kids, now sleeping
just inside, and took action. "I wasn't going to do it," he said. "I
wasn't going to let it happen again." Webster ran back into his
house to get the rifle he'd purchased after the previous robbery and
yelled for a friend inside to get his gun as well. They then ran
back outside and discovered two masked men by the side of the house.
Webster and his friend fired at the suspects, who jumped into their
car and took off. Webster and his friend followed the would-be
robbers in Webster's car and contacted police by cell phone. The
chase ended when the suspects crashed their car and the men took off
running. A bag containing several guns was recovered from the
vehicle. Webster recognized one of the handguns as one taken from
him during the previous robbery. The suspects were eventually caught
and taken into custody.
