In the course of a liquor store stickup, a thief aimed a .32 caliber revolver at Newark, N.J., store owner Michael Lambusta's head and pulled the trigger. The gun misfired, and before the robber could fire again, Lambusta quickly seized his own pistol from a shelf and fired once, fatally wounding his assailant. (the Star-Ledger, Newark, N.J.)
