FL: 72-Year-Old uses .22 to Subdue Attacker
Police said the 72-year-old victim told Varela to leave, but Varela grabbed the victim by the neck and knocked him down on the floor.
Varela then hid in a bedroom, at which point the victim grabbed his .22-caliber gun and fired one shot in Varela's direction, police said.
Police said Varela wasn't hit by the bullet but fell to the ground and hid under a mattress.
Neighbors eventually helped the victim subdue Varela until officers arrived.
