You can't blame Raymond Lewis Shepard for looking so glum on his mugshot. See, his would-be victim, a 69-year-old woman, turned the table on him when he dropped his handgun on her lap:
About 7 p.m. Friday, Carol J. Costello had just left the Walmart on Beville Road when a black Chevrolet Impala pulled in front and forced her to stop. A passenger armed with a silver semiautomatic handgun wrapped in a towel jumped out and tried to break the driver's-side window with the gun, police said.
When that didn't work, he leaped onto the hood and smashed a large hole in the windshield.
That's when the suspect's handgun fell through the hole and into Costello's lap. She grabbed the gun and aimed it at the suspect, who fled to the Impala.
