Violent Attack Back Home

I normally don’t report on armed citizen stories, but this one was from back home where I grew up. An 84 year old man managed to ward off an attacker with a .32 caliber colt pistol, after a brief gunfight. I’m wondering if it was one of these, in which case it wouldn’t be a six shot, but you never know with the media. Criminals often target the elderly because they seem to be easy targets, but being a veteran of World War II, my guess is this is “professional thief” is probably not the first, or the most dangerous person, who has fired bullets in Mr. Kaighn’s general direction. I would say he held up remarkably well to the stress of a gunfight at 84.
