An armed man entered a Dollar General store one afternoon, waved his gun in the air and threatened to kill everyone in the store. He held a cashier and a customer at gunpoint and ushered them toward a break room area. A customer carrying a concealed handgun then defeated the threat with a single shot. The gunman was struck in the chest and was pronounced dead at the scene. No one else was reportedly injured. (The Selma Times-Journal, Orrville, AL, 1/16/14)

Jon Lewis Alexander, 54, was working at the Beer 30 liquor store when a man walked in, drew a handgun and demanded money. Alexander pulled his own 9 mm handgun and pointed it at the would-be robber. The assailant slowly backed away before running out of the store. "One of the policemen told me later, 'You're a lucky man,'" Alexander said. "I said, 'I think he [the robber] is a little luckier than I am." Alexander was reportedly able to give police a detailed description of the gunman.

O'Brien slept in a room off the bar and grabbed a rifle when the burglars entered. The bartender held one at bay and the fleeing accomplice was captured by police near the getaway car.
