The would-be robber took a pistol from one accomplice and demanded money from the homeowner. Surprising the apparent robbers, the homeowner retrieved a gun from underneath a couch cushion in the living room and fired several times at the men. One man was struck by a bullet and died. A physical struggle ensued between the homeowner and the first man who entered the residence, while the third fled. The homeowner broke free and ran into his bedroom. At that time, the first would-be robber apparently ran off. Police located both suspects and charged them with aggravated robbery. (timesfreepress.com, Chattanooga, Tenn., 3/27/19)
