WILLIE LEE HILL says he returned home and "butted into" a robbery in
progress. Police say the suspect struck Hill several times with an
unopened soda can, rendering him unconscious. He awoke minutes
later. Bleeding profusely and half-blind without his glasses, he
managed to reach a pistol in his bedroom as the robber returned. "He
lunged toward me," Hill said. "There was only the bed between us,
and I shot him and he fell face first on the bed. He didn't move."
Hill says the gun saved his life. "I can handle a pistol; he said.
"I know that he was going to kill me if I hadn't got him first' When
police arrived, the suspect told them, "I cant feel my legs and I
got what I deserved."
