    A home intruder armed with a baseball bat escaped death by a matter of inches Monday when an armed elderly woman opened fire after he broke into her Pendleton, S.C., home and attacked her and another woman, police said.

    It was around 3 p.m. when the intruder busted into the house and attacked both women, according to police. The homeowner, identified as Frances Ward, 72, was able to draw her revolver and shoot the man, grazing his head. If the shot was an inch lower, he likely would be dead.



    The suspect, identified as 54-year-old Richard Keese, and the homeowner’s friend who was attacked were taken to the hospital and later released, though the suspect was immediately taken to jail.

    Ward told KITV-TV that she had hired Keese to fix her car last month. She was shocked when she says he forced his way into her home in the middle of the day. Ward’s friend then reportedly grabbed a baseball bat to defend herself, but the suspect ripped it from her grip and began beating her with it.

    It was at that point that Ward drew her firearm and shot the man. She was aiming to kill, but the intruder got lucky..................

    NEWPORT NEWS - A store clerk wrestled the gun away from a would-be robber and the whole thing was caught on surveillance video.

    "Not today, not today. You're not robbing us today. That's all I told him," said Thomas Smith.

    Smith was working with his brother at the Speedy Mart at 19th Street and Jefferson Avenue in Newport News on September 29. It was a normal night - nearly closing time - then two men walked in. One of them went to the counter, pulled a gun and demanded money.

    When he got close enough, Smith grabbed for gun and they struggled. At one point, the gun went off, but that didn't bother Smith.

    "My motto is I'm going home at the end of the night. I got kids. They look up to me. I got to get to them," Smith added.

    this. i also feel very comfortable knowing i have my weapon available. even though we live in a gated community(there have already been 2 breakins in the area) and have an alarm, it's good to know that if something like the above happens, i have another option.
