Chalk this one up to a robber who bit off more than he could chew.
Jerry Moore was working in the front yard of his Fayetteville, Ark., home when a man suddenly approached—wearing a mask and demanding money. The suspect forced Moore into the home at gunpoint, then dragged both he and his wife, Lou, to the car.
Alexis Cox, Moore’s daughter, told KHBS 40/29 reporters what happened next. “He told my parents, if you flee, I will shoot you. If you crash on purpose, I will shoot you. Fortunately, my dad has a gun license and had just moved a gun into the car a few days earlier.” At the right time, Jerry Moore reached for his gun, and Cox explained, “The man … lunged at my dad and started biting his arms. My dad was able to adjust his hands and shoot the man, then threw him out of the car.”
The Moores drove straight to urgent care for Jerry’s wounds, while investigators say the suspect is listed in serious condition.
