A death averted: passer-by uses gun to halt attack
http://www.clarionledger.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=...

As customers watched in horror Sunday afternoon, a man stabbed a woman and attempted to set her on fire in the parking lot of a Jackson store, witnesses said.

The attack was stopped by a passer-by, who held the man at gunpoint until police arrived, witnesses said.

The suspect, Henry Watson, 42, was arrested and is expected to face aggravated assault charges, Jackson Police Department Cmdr. Lee Vance said. Watson's wife, Gracie Watson, 42, was transported to the University of Mississippi Medical center, where she was listed in good condition.

"It wasn't five minutes from when she had left my line when I heard a scream outside," said Theresa Stuckey, a cashier at the Family Dollar at 516 Nakoma Drive in Jackson. "I looked out, and (the attacker) was on top of her stabbing her, and stabbing her and stabbing her.

A video interview with Stuckey can be found here:

1. So I guess they'll arrest the guy who stopped the attack
I mean, he had a gun and pointed it at someone and everything. I'll bet the police have a big dragnet out looking for him.

Henry must have been using a rubber knife. He stabbed Gracie for 20 minutes and she's listed in good condition. If I had to pick someone to attack me I think Henry would get strong consideration.
