The Armed Citizen® September 14, 2015

Two armed robbers might have thought they had the advantage against four people who were out having fun, but one of the would-be victims played the role of equalizer. Police say two gunmen in a parking garage ambushed the quartet after they left a Milford, Conn., tavern at 1:30 a.m. The robbers demanded that the targeted victims hand over their valuables, and one assailant shot one of the four tavern patrons in the neck. Another member of the group returned fire with his licensed firearm, wounding one of the culprits, a 23-year-old man. An alleged accomplice fled the scene but turned himself in about a week later. Both suspects have been charged. (The Milford Mirror, Milford, CT, 3/5/15)

An elderly Houston homeowner was forced to defend himself Friday evening when, after confronting a man who was attempting to break into a vehicle on his property, the suspect charged at him with an unidentified object. The resident fired at the advancing burglar at least once with his shotgun, and the 35-year-old thief was pronounced dead at the scene. This incident was the second time the residence had been robbed in the past two weeks. After investigating the event, Harris County sheriff deputies do not expect any charges to be filed against the homeowner, who has lived at that location for more than four decades.

A Jacksonville, Fla., grocery store owner ran to James Yankey’s truck and shouted that a man was robbing his establishment. Yankey reached for a pistol in his glove compartment and got out of the truck just as the 16-year-old thief emerged from the store. The young hoodlum dropped his loot and waited quietly for the police to arrive. (The Florida Times-Union, Jacksonville, FL)
