Daniel Booth, 61, manager of a motel in San Francisco, Calif., was working late in his locked office when a man approached, saying he had car trouble. When Booth came out to help, the man pulled a gun, forced Booth back inside, and pushed him to the floor. Booth grabbed a pistol and fired three times, wounding the holdup man.
