Patrick McCullough displays the .380 caliber pistol he shot 16 year-old Melvin McHenry with, at his home on the north side of Oakland, CA, Wednesday July 20, 2005, and talks about his experiences living there. As people like Patrick and his family deal with drug dealers and other violent crime, events on this tough neighborhood street came to a violent climax on February 18, 2005. According to McCullough, he shot and wounded 16 year-old Melvin McHenry as McHenry and other youths were attacking him in his front yard, when he believed McHenry was reaching for a friend's gun. Some neighbors and even Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown have come out to support him. He says he and his family refuse to give in and move away. ( Rod Lamkey Jr. / The Washington Times )
