Who would have ever thought that 84 year-old Memphian Willie Hancox would be toting a gun. What ever it may be, one of his sons recently tried to take the gun from him, but talked it over with another sibling and decided to give it back according to WMCTV news.
On Friday afternoon 84 year-old Willie Hancox had a suprise for an intruder, two shots in the head. Hancox called 911 who alerted MPD that the 84 year-old had shot an intruder.
"He said if they come in the door, I'm not gonna let them kill me and he meant that," stated his neighbor, Dorothy Dickerson a neighbor across the street that looks after Hancox.
Dickerson added, "I say God is good, cause they had no business in there, and whoever did that got what they deserved. And, I say it in front of they face, not behind they back and I mean it."
Right now Hancox's neighbors believe he did the right thing.
"People that's law abiding people is getting tired of being pushed around by the thugs and thieves and dope dealers," stated Markel Dickerson.
At the time of the incident the intruder was listed in critical condition.
