Donald Collins was under police guard Sunday afternoon in the intensive care unit of Athens Regional Medical Center, where was treated for gunshot wounds to his face and head, police said.   Collins was shot Saturday morning by the 75-year-old owner of Classic Cash, 2141 W. Broad St., police said. While preparing to open the business shortly before 9 a.m., the owner opened a side door to let in an employee when he noticed a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt run across the parking lot, police said. The owner got his licensed handgun and opened the door to find out what the man was up to, police said, as Collins ran into a storage room attached to the business.  The business owner alerted Collins that he was armed and called for him to show himself. When Collins came out pointing a pistol at him, the businessman fired his gun three times, striking Collins twice"
