A 36-year-old male wearing black gloves and a mask over his face entered a Dairy Queen restaurant carrying a samurai-style sword. The man approached employee Michael Wehbe, 20, unsheathed the 41-inch blade and swung it into the cash register several times. When Wehbe’s older brother, Christian, 23, also an employee, witnessed the man’s violent behavior on the surveillance cameras from the back of the restaurant, he immediately took action. Christian emerged from the back with his 9 mm handgun and shot the assailant twice. Police found him lying wounded just outside; he later died at the hospital. There were no other reported injuries. (Las Vegas Review-Journal, Las Vegas, NV, 8/21/12)

October 1964: Alone in his Little Rock, Ark., beverage store, Floyd Strickland was approached by 2 thugs, one of whom was carrying a single-shot rifle with a sawed off barrel. Without saying a word, the armed bandit fired at Strickland, wounding him in the arm. Strickland pulled out his pistol and fired 5 shots at the intruders. Both robbers were felled-one was dead and the other had 2 broken arms. (Arkansas Gazette)

December 1979: When three masked men, two of them armed, burst into an Irvington, N.J., bank, security guard Johnnie C. Mason reached for his revolver and ducked out of sight. After two of the robbbers ran behind the counter, Mason ordered the third, who was standing guard by the door, to surrender. The robber whirled to fire, but Mason shot first and killed him. Mason then turned toward the counter and fired again, mortally wounding the other gunman. The unarmed robber thereupon surrendered. (The Star Ledger, Newark, N.J.)
