Richie Chapman of Bowie, Ariz., did not know that in exercising his
right to protect his property, he was also aiding in bringing a
murderer to justice. Chapman was working at a Bowie RV store when a
man entered and demanded all the money in the cash register. The man
then pulled out a gun, prompting Chapman to draw his own gun and
fire, hitting the robber. "If he had gotten a shot off, I would have
been dead," said Chapman. The robber fled and was later apprehended
at a local hospital. The man turned out to be Johnny Lee Williams,
who was being sought in the kidnapping and murder of an east Texas
Wal-Mart employee, Megan Holden. After being treated at the
hospital, Williams was turned over to the FBI.
