The hooded armed robber likely thought the older, female clerk
would be an easy mark as he entered a Tampa convenience store,
brandishing his gun and demanding money. He wasn't counting on
confronting someone like Janet Grammer. The 64-year-old mother of
10, a former security guard, pulled her own gun from under the cash
register and fired, hitting the criminal in the chest. "I think he
thought I was an old woman and would just give him the money,"
Grammer said after the incident. "I think I scared the hell out of
him. I thought he was getting ready to shoot me in the head. My
life was at stake." Grammer, who also has 32 grandchildren, three
great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren, later said
she worried that she had killed the hospitalized assailant. "It was
very upsetting. The good Lord had to be with me," she said.
