Juan Amezage and Stephen Soto were enjoying the fall weather outside
Soto's apartment. The mood was shattered when two strangers walked
by two or three times as If casing the neighborhood. Then the
strangers approached. 'What time is it?' one asked. Soto looked down
at his watch. but as he raised his head the stranger said, 'Hey, run
them,' and drew a gun. But Amezaga and Soto are concealed-carry
permit holden. Soto pulled a 9 mm pistol just as the stranger shot.
The bullet grazed Soto's shin, breaking the skin. Police say Soto
fired two or three times, and the robbers fled. One robber stopped
and again began shooting. Soto and Amezaga both returned fire and
the robber fled. "It could have been real bad last night If it
wasn't for the quick thinking and our concealed-weapons permits"
Soto said. "We might not even be here"
