Learning lesson's the hard way.
Sad and tragic story. It seems that a 74 year old man was shopping near the sporting goods area and a 46 year old "homeless" man beat him to death with a baseball bat in the store. Police were saying it seems to be random, though the story title suggests it may have been over a hand-out.
I'm guessing the homeless guy hit him in the head from behind, and it is really hard to remain absolutely diligent 24/7, I'd say we all let our guards down on occasion.
Big lesson here on situational awareness and being properly armed. Just think had the shopper been better prepared, how much different this could have worked out.
