He got his gun, and he told his mother to call 911. Then he saw the same two suspicious-looking men returning up the street, except now they were wearing ski masks and carrying guns. "When the two moved into range, Bragg identified himself as a military policeman and told both to stop, to drop their weapons and hit the ground. 'They were stunned,'" Bragg told the firearms association. One of the two men surrendered immediately and claimed to have been forced to aid in the crime the men had just committed. The other man made as if to raise his gun and shoot, but with Bragg's gun pointing at him, he thought better of it and fled instead. Police later captured him.
It turns out that the two men had robbed a store and killed the store's owner and an employee.
