Herbert Cameron and his wife had checked into a Blanco, Texas, motel when someone knocked on the door of their room. Believing it to be the manager, Cameron opened the door, only to have three armed men knock him down as they entered. In an exchange of gunfire in which Cameron himself was wounded, the motel occupant opened fire with his revolver, killing two of his attackers and wounding the third. A county sheriff said that no charges would be placed against Cameron, adding that all three suspects had lengthy police records. (The American-Statesman, Austin, Texas)
