81-year-old Korean War veteran Howard Buckner was lured to the front door of his home in Sacramento, Calif., by two criminals claiming that their car had broken down. As Buckner went to retrieve his phone to help the men, the robbers drew a gun, turned out the lights and ordered Buckner to find his wallet. The robbers forced Buckner around the house to look for his wallet, while one of the criminals threatened to pistol-whip him. The robbers and Buckner eventually made it to the bedroom, where Buckner was able to retrieve his bolt-action rifle and fire at the criminals. After Buckner opened fire the robbers immediately fled the scene.
