Bryan Lee, owner of the Almond Avenue Pharmacy, had no choice but to fire his .45-cal. pistol when a 31-year-old male entered his store firing a similar model. The gunman entered the store and immediately fired multiple rounds striking Lee's mother, Sophie Lee, in the leg. Bryan Lee returned fire, causing the man to flee. He collapsed a block away and later died at a local hospital. Lee was unharmed and his mother was expected to make a quick recovery. Lee said, "We just did what we had to do to survive."

A 46-year-old woman told Myrtle Beach police she fended off a would-be robber early Friday by kicking him and then pointing her gun at him, according to a police report. The victim told officers that at 2:50 a.m. Friday she arrived for her shift at the Bagel Factory when a man opened the driver's door, police said. The victim said she kicked at the robber, who had something covering his face and a hooded sweatshirt over his head and a black hat, and he pushed her into the vehicle in an attempt to get her purse, according to the report. The victim said she continued to kick at the man until she reached into the glove box and retrieved her handgun. The victim said she pointed the gun at the suspect and he turned and ran. Detectives are investigating the incident. (The Sun News, Myrtle Beach, SC, 2/16/13)
