When a holdup man wearing a ski mask and brandishing a pistol entered Lester B. Johantgen's jewelry store in Minneapolis, Minn., Johantgen, who said he was "sick and tired of being held up," grabbed a shotgun and pointed it at the man.
As the surprised gunman fled, Johantgen's son knocked him down, disarmed him and held him for police. (Minneapolis, Minn., Star)
