Is that an ATF cap below?

IN: 76-year-old store owner kills robbery suspect: "A 76-year-old Eastside jewelry store owner opened fired on two suspected robbers Wednesday morning, killing one and trapping the second upstairs until police arrived. ... Roscoe Parmley shot and killed Corey Artry, 18, at Rosco Jewelry, 5416 E. Washington St. Police captured Artry's brother, Nicholas Artry, 20, in a second-floor room. He was arrested on preliminary charges of robbery and felony murder. The murder charge arises from the allegation that he was involved in a crime that led to a death. Dozens of officers were on the scene minutes after the shooting was reported at 10:56 a.m., but Indianapolis Police Department Chief Michael Spears said officers could do little to prevent this kind of 'brazen' attack. 'Two apparently able-bodied young men decided they would try to victimize an honest store owner,' Spears said. 'Now we have one man dead and another who is probably going to spend a significant amount of his life in prison.'"

PA: Woman fights off masked robbers: "Dan Brown said he's not too surprised his 110-pound wife, Sheri, held her own Friday when two masked men attempted to rob the family's Fayette County auto repair shop. The couple, both in their 30s and married 17 years, opened DSB Auto Service four years ago on Three Mile Hill, Bullskin Township, not far from Mt. Pleasant. ... 'There was a big guy and a small guy. She was alone when they came up to her and told her to give them all the money. She grabbed a pole we use to prop up a car hood and smacked the big one. He then hit her in the head, but she was able to get away'" Brown said. 'She started throwing chairs and stuff in front of her to keep them away from her while she tried to get to the office. She got there and pulled out the gun we keep in the drawer for protection.' As soon as the mother of two pulled out the family's .357-caliber Magnum, the thieves fled."
