Seventy-four-year-old Willie Brown had shrugged off the noises
downstairs as typical bumps in the night. But then, a man holding a
knife appeared in his bedroom doorway. Brown described the ensuing
events to a local reporter: "He said, 'Don't move, I got a knife,' I
said 'You got a knife, huh?' He said 'Yeah' ... I reached under my
pillow and came up firing my .38 Smith and Wesson. He said, 'Oops'
and turned and ran down the steps." An officer later spotted the
wounded suspect driving erratically at high speeds and arrested him.
"I might be old, but I am not slow," said Brown. "I think [the
intruder] might be through breaking in people's houses for a while."
