After an armed burglar stole $100 from his home, Angel Benitez took
a self-defense class and obtained a concealed-carry permit. "This
year, I'm going to prepare myself," Benitez recalled saying to
himself. And, according to police, he did just that when he heard
the screams of his friend, Carmen Ramos. Benitez found a man
pointing a gun at Ramos. "When I saw the gun, I fired," said
Benitez. "He could have killed my friend." Ramos' daughter, who was
watching television, thought her mother had been shot, but then saw
the burglar stumble out the door. "He was yelling 'Ow, ow!'" she
recalled. A man with a gunshot wound later arrived at the hospital,
but police were still investigating whether he was the intruder.
