Harrisburg Patriot-News (Harrisburg,

Accountant, gunman trade
shots inside Lower Paxton jewelry store
As her co-workers were ordered onto the
floor, a frightened but armed accountant at a Lower Paxton Twp. jewelry store
shot one of three gun welding suspects in the abdomen yesterday after he
cornered her in a bathroom authorities said.... The account of the incident
tells how employees were forced to lie face down on the floor and that she was
in the back of the store and that Police were astounded that the six employees
and one customer were not harmed. "It could have gotten ugly over
there," Sgt. Richard Toth said.
KABA Note: Yes, it could have gotten
ugly, but an armed citizen saved the day. Any information leading to
contact with the armed woman is welcome. We'd like to give her the Good
Citizen Award and a box of ammo.
