Tale of Two Cities: Dayton Man Abducted; Burlington Man Spared
Dr. Major K. Lee III, 61, said he was closing his office at 6000 Sycamore Woods Blvd. when three men approached him. After a scuffle, one assailant forced him at gunpoint into his two-seater car while another followed in a second car. The third assailant remained at Lee’s office.
Lee persuaded the assailants to take him to an automatic teller machine after they threatened to kill him, Trotwood police said.

William Keller and his wife were closing their store in Burlington, Vt., when a man wearing a gray ski mask forced his way into the building and ordered them to put their money into a bag. Instead, Keller put his hand on a pistol and fired one shot at the intruder, causing him to flee.
• Could the lifting of Ohio's unconstitutional ban on carrying a concealed weapon for self-defense save the next intended victim?
