WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA — A cigarette thief and armed robber grossly underestimated his intended target, when that target defended himself with his handgun....
"A 56-year-old clerk told police that the suspect, armed with a knife, had approached him and demanded money."

"The clerk then drew his own handgun and the suspect fled on foot. Police said the clerk had a concealed carry permit for the weapon."
