When a young man showed up at Breaux's Jewelers in New Orleans
dressed as an old lady-complete with a walker, purse, gray wig and
tan dress-the ruse was good enough to get him buzzed inside. But
storeowner Mike Breaux quickly saw through the disguise and drew his
handgun just as police say the suspect started to pull a handgun out
of his purse and leap over the counter. Breaux fired, striking and
incapacitating the would-be robber. From outside, a second suspect
fired several shots through the glass front door as Breaux and one
of his employees, who had picked up the first suspect's gun,
returned fire. Breaux was grazed by a bullet before the wounded man
fled with yet another accomplice. The second suspect turned up at a
hospital later with gunshot wounds to his neck, back and arm. The
first suspect was taken from the store by ambulance. Both men were
listed in critical condition.
