A Good Samaritan saved the day by pulling a gun on a would-be robber near Memphis, Tenn. A parking attendant had tried to do a good deed by walking a woman to her car. As they neared her vehicle, an armed assailant attacked the attendant and pushed him to the ground. As the bad guy began to rummage through the attendant’s pockets, an armed citizen saw what was happening. The passerby pulled his gun and told the assailant to freeze. The hooligan said he was unarmed, then jumped into a waiting van to flee. The attendant suffered minor injuries but was said to be fine. (fox13memphis.com, Memphis, TN, 4/21/17)

Dorman reached under the counter for a .45 and fired six shots at point-blank range, killing his assailant. (Los Angeles Examiner, Los Angeles, CA)
