Armed & Dangerous: 89-Year-Old World War II Veteran Shoots Armed Robber

” Arthur M. Lewis may be elderly, but criminals are learning the North Palm Beach man is no easy mark.

  The 89-year-old decorated World War II veteran foiled an armed robbery attempt Saturday afternoon at his Lake Park jewelry business that left a 44-year-old suspect with six gunshot wounds, but no loot.
