    EL DORADO, Ark.— An elderly man beaten unconscious by an assailant wielding a soda can later awoke and shot the man during an attempted robbery, police said.[/b]
    Willie Lee Hill[/b], 93, told police he saw the robber while in his bedroom Wednesday night. Hill confronted Douglas B. Williams Jr.[/b], 24, of El Dorado, who struck the elderly man at least 50 times, knocking him out, police said.
    Hill, covered in blood from the attack, regained consciousness and pulled a .38-caliber handgun on Williams. Williams saw the gun and charged Hill, who fired one round, police said. The bullet struck Williams in the throat.
    When police arrived, officers said Williams told them, "I can't feel my legs and I got what I deserved."
    Paramedics took Hill and Williams to the Medical Center of South Arkansas for treatment. Doctors later sent Williams to the Louisiana State University Medical Center[/b] at Shreveport, where he was listed in critical condition Friday.

    Employees at the Medical Center of South Arkansas refused to give Hill's condition or say if he'd been discharged from the hospital Friday, citing medical privacy laws.
    Officers reported finding a set of keys, two hearing aids, a CD player, an MP3 player[/b], a Craftsman drill bit set and three pocket knives inside Williams' pockets. Police plan to charge Williams with residential burglary, second-degree battery, theft of property and theft by receiving.

    Sounds like taking one in the neck gave him some perspective.

    The cop should have told him, "That's a good thing because the K9 is gnawing on them right now..."

    I'd press charges.
    Why open carry? Because 1911 > 911.
