DEKALB, Ga. - The puffy-faced, middle-aged woman at the CVS checkout counter opened a black purse and showed the clerk a rusty gun. She said she was sorry, that she was dying of cancer and had no choice.

“Don’t be scared,” the woman said, according to police. “Just give me all the money in the cash drawer.”
