Hearing the sound of breaking glass from somewhere inside his home, an Amarillo, Texas, homeowner armed himself and decided to investigate. During his reconnaissance, the man saw a gloved hand with a gun in it reaching through the back door. The homeowner then fired his weapon at the person. The assailant fled the residence without getting inside the home. The homeowner was uninjured. (Amarillo Globe News, Amarillo, TX, 9/15/16)

In the early morning hours in Stewartstown, Pa., Harry H. Grimm heard the lock being forced on his apartment door. Grabbing a 12-ga. shotgun, Grimm shouted, “If you come in, I’ll shoot.” When the door burst open Grimm dropped the intruder with one fatal shot. It was later learned that the would-be burglar had broken into the same apartment three times previously and had served 18 months for one of the break-ins. (Erie Times News, Stewartstown, PA)
