When two men tried to pull Dexter Hedgepeth from his car at a pool hall near Hollister, N.C., Hedgepeth fought back. After being cut twice, he retrieved a .380-cal. handgun and fired killing one assailant and wounding the other. A grand jury declined to issue an indictment in the case, which police said appeared to be self-defense.
