"This is something you read about happening to someone else. You
never think it will happen to you," said Linda Fixler of Bardonia,
N.Y. Her husband was working alone in their jewelry store early one
morning when two men came in asking to look at some engagement
rings. After a few minutes both pulled out guns, aimed them at
Fixler and threatened to kill him. During the course of the robbery,
however, Fixler was able to retrieve his own handgun and shoot one
of the robbers who fell to the floor seriously injured while the
other fled on foot. The fleeing robber was later apprehended along
with a third man who was in the "get-away" vehicle, but had driven
off when he heard the gunshots. "It's a terrible feeling," said
Fixler. "All you want to do is stay alive."
