Elwood Pickett just wanted to be a good neighbor, so when two young
men asked to use the phone, he handed it out the door. Then he grew
suspicious. "They used the phone and left, but when they came back
the second time, I was ready for them in case there was trouble,"
the 80-year-old Pickett explained. He handed the phone out a second
time, but he says one of the men "pushed through like an elephant
and pounded me with a knife. He... stabbed me half to death, and I
thought it was time." But it wasn't. Police say Pickett, a World War
II vet and lifelong hunter, drew his .38 caliber pistol and fired
three shots, striking one of the men and causing both to flee. One
suspect went to the hospital; the other to jail. Pickett was badly
injured but is recuperating.
