Two HOURS AFTER closing the convenience store where she works,
Sophia Lynn Stewart went to sleep in a back room. Then she heard a
crash. "It was real loud, like a bomb," she explained. Police say a
prowler used a rock to break a window and gain entry to the store.
Stewart grabbed her .357 revolver and went to investigate. She saw a
man in a dark hooded sweatshirt behind the counter. He threw an
object at her, and Stewart fired three shots, causing her assailant
to run from the scene. "I belong to the NRA. They teach me how to
shoot safely," said Stewart, adding she thought the suspect was too
frightened for a return visit.
