The Armed Citizen® July 6, 2015

One shot was enough to stop a December break-in at a Western Pennsylvania home. A 37-year-old man entered a California Borough home through a window. The homeowner confronted the man in the kitchen of the home and shot the intruder as he started running toward the resident. After being shot, the wrongdoer fled through the front door, then collapsed in the yard about 50 feet from the door. He later was pronounced dead at the Monongahela Valley Hospital. Washington County Coroner Tim Warco said the suspect died from a single gunshot wound to the chest. Authorities were investigating. (Williamsport Sun-Gazette, Williamsport, PA, 12/28/14)

An Edmonds, Wash., woman took the protection of her family into her own hands when she was confronted with an intruder early Thursday morning. The 33-year-old mother was awakened at 3:15 a.m. by someone pounding on the front door. When the burglar started trying to force his way into the home, she called the police and armed herself, then got into a struggle with the man to keep him from entering. As the man continued to break into the house, the homeowner shot him once in the abdomen. The suspect was taken into custody and is being treated at a nearby hospital, where he is listed in serious condition. (The Seattle Times, Seattle, WA, 11/28/14)

March 1973
A man walked into the Chestnut Hill Pharmacy in Everett, Mass., brandishing a magnum handgun, and demanded money and drugs from a clerk. Steven Helman, manager of the store, seized a revolver, ran around to the front of the counter and, when the robber aimed his gun at him, fired one shot that killed the holdup man.
