From the August 26, 2008 Newsday:
Two assailants picked on the wrong guy when they confronted a man exiting his car in his driveway in West Hempstead on Monday night, police said.
The 35-year-old homeowner, who owns a check-cashing business in the city, was armed -- carrying his licensed Glock 9-mm pistol.
When one of the assailants fired at the man, he fired back. No one was hit by the gunfire on Oakford Street before the pair fled.
