Kansas: Robbery Foiled When Clerk Got to His Gun Sooner: "A robbery quickly turned sour for the robber late Wednesday night when the cashier got to his gun faster than he could. According to Jim Cormier, who was working the register that night, the man came into Cormier Liquor, 2611 SE California, around eleven o'clock carrying a black gym bag. When the man reached into the bag and began to reach for his gun, Mr. Cormier showed his own. The suspect took off running and headed south down the alleyway. Police described the suspect as a black male, 5'4", 135 lbs., wearing a black doo rag and a black silky scarf around the lower half of his face."

Mississippi: Clerk, robber exchange gunfire: "Ridgeland police are searching for a man who opened fire on a store clerk during an attempted armed robbery Wednesday night. Just after dark, a man entered the North Park Package Store at 134 Dyess Road, and pointed a gun at a clerk, Ridgeland Police Department Lt. John Neal said. The clerk then pulled out a gun and pointed it at the robber, he said. It is unclear who shot first, but both the robber and clerk fired shots at each other, Neal said. Neither was hit. The suspect fled the scene empty-handed in a tan sedan"

Tennessee: Pets Help Resident Fight Back Intruder: "Police said a mother and her family pets fought back a gunman who tried to rob her at her south Nashville home. The incident happened on Martin Street, just a few blocks from the state fairgrounds around 10 p.m. Tuesday. Ronda Hill said she, her 2-year-old son and her mother were walking inside their house when a man jumped a fence, pointed a gun at them and demanded their belongings. Hill said her dogs then went after the intruder. "When they attacked him, he dropped the gun, and I picked it up, and I fired at him. He then took off running," said Hill. She said she fired the gun two times and is not sure if any of the bullets struck the robber. Police are still searching for the intruder"
