jitney driver said he feared for his life in Duquesne, Pa. during an ordeal in April. The driver picked up a man and a woman. The driver described feeling something amiss when the man suddenly told him to take a side alley before requesting a stop. The man told the driver he intended to rob him and struck the driver between the eyes with his gun. Bleeding, the driver left his vehicle while pursued by the man, who was pointing a gun. Cornered and fearing for his life, the driver pulled out his concealed firearm and shot at the would-be robber three times. Police were called and found the assailant dead at the scene. The woman fled. The driver had a permit and was not charged by police. (wtae.com, Pittsburgh, 4/4/19)
