Victoria Davison was approached by two teenagers. One teen demanded, “I want the keys, car, everything.” When Davison hesitated to comply with the carjackers, one of them indicated they had a gun. That is when Davison pulled out her own firearm from her gym bag and fired. One assailant suffered a single gunshot wound and fell to the ground, while the second assailant fled on foot. Both suspects were later apprehended and face charges of armed robbery and theft. Both suspects were reportedly connected to a string of robberies and carjackings, one of which resulted in the shooting of a 43-year-old man. Davison was not injured during the incident.

Two of the three men who attempted to rob a Marathon, Ohio, gas station were shot and killed when the store clerk defended himself with a firearm. According to the police, a scuffle occurred between the would-be robbers and the employee when they entered the establishment and demanded money from the register. During the altercation, the clerk and two of the three assailants were shot, after which all three thieves fled the scene on foot. The two injured robbers were encountered outside the gas station and were taken to an area hospital where they were pronounced dead. The authorities are still searching for their accomplice. The clerk was wounded in the legs, and was transported to the hospital where his condition is unknown. (The Canton Repository, Canton, OH, 10/22/14)

From the Armed Citizen® Archives
August 1969:
Two men entered the grocery of E.T. Hunter, 77, Ormund Beach, Fla. One asked for cigarettes. When Hunter turned around, the other pointed a pistol at his head and demanded cash. When Hunter grabbed for the pistol, the bandit hit him over the head with it. Mrs. Hunter, meanwhile, grabbed a gun from under the counter, fired and missed. The shots forced the bandits to flee on foot. Neighbor Charles Hines spotted them and covered one with a gun until police arrived. The other was arrested later. (News-Journal, Daytona Beach, FL)
