Passengers were picked up by a limousine driver and driven to a nightclub. Afterward, the party was taken to a convenience store. Two vehicles followed the limousine from the convenience store and pulled up on either side of the limo forcing the chauffeur to stop. There was an attempted robbery during which bullets riddled the limousine. Two passengers sustained non-life-threatening injuries. The chauffeur, who has a concealed carry permit, returned fire, fending off the attackers. (Limousine, Charter & Tour magazine, St. Petersburg, FL, 4/2/13)

January 1980: A man broke into the Richmond, Va., home of Brodus Cheatham, crept into the bedroom and demanded cash. Even though Cheatham complied with the demand, the thief punched him in the face. At that, Cheatham grabbed a .38 cal. revolver from under the bed and fired, seriously wounding his attacker, who fled but was later arrested by police. (The News-Leader, Richmond, Va.)
