On Sunday evening, March 10th, in Ocala, Florida, James Stevens, an 81-year old, saw he was being followed. Since he didn’t want this person following him home, he pulled over and so did the would-be robber.
Lonnie Lorenza Hollingsworth Jr., a 28-year old, approached James and demanded everything he had. This turned out to be a mistake, as James had a .38 revolver and “gave” Lonnie four .38 bullets.
Only one bullet hit the perp, but that was more than enough for him to need CPR from the arriving police officer. Lonnie was previously convicted on firearms charges and for removing the serial number from a firearm.
James Stevens saved himself from a beating, robbery and even a worse situation. Lonnie was hospitalized in serious condition.
