    Good job, considering.
    An illustration of the benefit of some means to see who/what they are carrying is at the door befor opening it.
    Better for him to open the door than some poor less prepared homeowner. Sounds like the odd job kid may have tipped off others to valuables at the location.

    Not only good awareness, but considering a certain amount of being dazed from the thwack with the baseball bat which was sustained on opening the door, amazing. Its hard enough to use good judgment when unimpaired in anyway. Its amazing that he did so after being hit.

    From article;

    Crenshaw and Nichols were arrested at a local hospital after being dropped off for treatment with gunshot wounds to their torsos. Benard later was arrested at a nearby rental home.

    It's a bad idea to do that in Pensacola, most of my best friend's family lives down there. One of his uncles doesn't have a gun safe...he has a gun closet!

    Nice job on the old guy's part...
    Crenshaw and Nichols were arrested at a local hospital, but they should have ended up at the coroner's office.
