Senior wounds knife-wielding assailant with gun stored in car. On today's Armed Citizen File, Ginny Simone reports on August Peters, 74, of Houston, Texas, who was entering his car when Martin Baltazar, 18, grabbed him and pressed a knife to his throat. Peters managed to retrieve a gun from inside the vehicle and shoot Baltazar, who fled into a nearby house and lost his baggy pants while jumping through a window. The assailant was arrested shortly afterwards, and neighbors praised Peters for his courageous resistance.
