Two men were waiting for Leonard Freidberg, a 47-year-old taxi driver from Jacksonville, Fla., dispatched to an early morning fare. After the cab took the two to their destination, the duo assaulted Freidberg with a small pistol. Freidberg picked up his own .357 revolver and fired, mortally wounding one of his attackers. The slain robber had an extensive prior arrest record. The taxi driver was not charged. (The Democrat, Tallahassee, Fla.)
