James Shema, owner of Shema's Outdoor Sports in Merrillville, Ind.,
knew immediately he was in a deadly situation. A man entered his
store with a sawed-off shotgun and ordered Shema, his wife, Kathy,
and three customers to drop to the floor. As Shema moved toward the
floor, he grabbed a .40-cal. handgun he kept behind the counter and
fired two shots at the robber. The wounded gunman fled the store and
was soon apprehended by authorities who found him bleeding in the
back seat of a nearby SUV. Shema said he just did what he had to do.
"When he came in here with a shotgun and no mask on his face I
didn't think he planned to leave survivors," Shema explained.
