"Two days after firing at two men suspected in a recent string of violent south Minneapolis robberies, Edward Curtis, 61, wanted people to know he wasn't proud of what he'd done. But given the beating the men were giving him Tuesday night, he figured he had no choice but to use his handgun, he said. 'I had to do what I had to do,' he recalled Thursday. 'I thought they were going to kill me. They didn't get a chance to.' Curtis, blindsided outside his Pillsbury Avenue apartment building, was left with a broken nose and fractured right eye socket, he said. He said police have yet to find any evidence that Curtis' shots hit either of the suspects who fled Tuesday night." (05/12/11)
