A string of armed robberies finally came to an end in Wilmington,
Del., when one victim fought back. Michael Brown had been on a
three-month robbery spree when he decided to rob a local liquor
store. When he displayed his gun, the store owner produced a gun of
his own. Brown fled, but a police officer who was patrolling the
neighborhood spotted him. He was able to track down Brown, who was
found hiding under a porch. Brown was linked to at least three other
armed robbery attempts and was charged with each of them.
