Police in Albuquerque, N.M., say a resident won’t be charged in the fatal shooting of an intruder. A Northeast Albuquerque resident was awakened one morning by a strange noise. The New Mexico man grabbed is gun and went to investigate. He found a stranger in his kitchen who threatened to kill him and came at him with what appeared to be a knife. The resident shot the 28-year-old suspect, killing him. “You do have a right to defend yourself in your home,” police spokesman Tanner Tixier said, in explaining that no charges would be filed against the resident.

As Mark Levins, owner of a Chicago, Ill., sporting goods store, was preparing to close for the night, he was confronted by an armed bandit who ordered him to stand in the rear of the shop. As the bandit started scooping money out of the cash register, Levins slipped a pistol out of a filing cabinet. He ordered the bandit to surrender, but instead the intruder turned his gun on Levins. Each man fired his weapon twice—and the bandit fell dead with a bullet in his heart. (Chicago Sun Times, Chicago, IL)
