    (NY) Resident shoots intruder 06-09-03

    Buffalo News - Police report resident shot intruder on West Delavan

    6/9/2003 A West Delavan Avenue resident shot an intruder who tried to
    rob him inside his house Sunday, Northwest District officers said.

    Police said the resident let a woman come into his house at 3:40 a.m.
    because of a supposed emergency, only to have a man enter later and
    demand money. When the intruder picked up a knife, police said, the
    resident shot him in the stomach with a registered .38 revolver. The
    couple fled on foot on Dewitt Street.

    Robbery attempt has a fare ending
    By AISLING SWIFT, Staff Writer

    DURHAM -- Two teens learned the hard way Thursday that a taxi isn't a
    good choice for a getaway car and showing a fake gun might start a real

    A teen wearing a suit walked into David Michael Jewelers in Homestead
    Market Shopping Center on N.C. 54 shortly before 1 p.m. and said he was
    buying jewelry for a Los Angeles jewelry show this week, said David Cope
    Jr., who waited on the teen.

    Trouble is, jewelers know the big show this week is in Las Vegas. And
    there was another problem.

    "He was shaking. He was just a kid," Cope said. "That's how I knew
    something was wrong."

    The teen, who went outside to a waiting taxi three times to consult his
    "uncle," chose $40,000 worth of diamond solitaires, rings, bracelets and
    earrings, Cope said.

    "He said he would pay by credit card, but he never showed one," Cope
    said. Instead, he said, the teen showed him the butt end of what
    appeared to be a handgun, but he didn't point it.

    "I pulled my gun out and said, 'Get out. Get out,' " said Cope, who had
    a .22-caliber revolver.
    The young man cursed "and ran to the taxi."
    Cope called 911 and police, who didn't have enough cars nearby, asked
    sheriff's deputies for assistance. Deputy John Helsius spotted the taxi
    and stopped it near Highgate and Audubon Lake drives.

    Police charged Joshua Hunter, 16, of 1304 Seaton Road and Adam Mack, 18,
    of 120 Carlion Court with attempted armed robbery.

    They were being held in Durham County jail Thursday night with their
    bails set at $30,000 each and are to appear today in District Court.
    Durham Police Sgt. Mike Baker and his dog, Doenja, recovered an air
    pistol that police think was used in the robbery.

    Punky Boy is very lucky to have not eaten lead after trying a stunt like that.

    Wonder what would have happened had he tried that in the average 'gun shop' ? ? ?

    I was at work when the jewelry store thing happened, and we have dealt with those two upstanding citizens before.
