Gloria Turner remembers firing with one hand and dialing 911 with
the other. Turner and her husband, Bobby Doster, had owned their
grocery store for eight years and, although they were prepared for
the worst, they did not expect it. But one evening, while the
Turners were stocking their shelves, two teens walked in and
demanded money. Turner recounts, "I was about to give it to them
when the first guy said, 'You're not moving fast enough' and pulls
out a gun." The robber aimed at Doster and fired, missing him. When
their attackers' gun jammed, the couple had enough time to retreat
behind the counter and grab their own guns. A gun battle erupted in
the store. When it was over, both robbers were dead. Sheriff Mike
Smith said that the store owners would not be charged, adding that,
"People have a right to protect their lives and their property."
