Crawfordsville, Ark., resident Clarence Cochran operated a small
store out of his home that he called The Neighborhood Store. But one
night the neighborhood erupted in gunfire when two men entered
Cochran's store with the intent to rob it. One of the robbers shot
at Cochran, hitting him in the stomach. Despite the wound, the
80-year-old Cochran was able to retrieve his pistol and fire at both
men, killing one. The other robber, identified as Antonio Bass, fled
but was apprehended at a nearby hospital. He was charged with
aggravated robbery. Deputies on the scene said Cochran was alert and
able to speak to them, although he was airlifted to the hospital as
a precautionary measure.
