A Temple Hills, Md., couple was fast asleep early in the morning when their dog alerted them to the presence of an intruder. Grabbing a handgun, the male resident went to investigate. When he encountered the burglar, the armed citizen fired at the thief, striking him at least once. The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening wounds to his legs.

In Fort Fairfield, Maine, Mrs. Otis Flannery woke her husband, grabbed a Luger pistol and ran across the street to their store where they surprised two burglars. At gunpoint, Mrs. Flannery forced the pair to lie on the floor until a policeman arrived to take them away to jail. When she discovered two accomplices in a nearby getaway car, they attempted to flee at her approach, but halted and surrender when she fired the gun at them. Mrs. Flannery then held the gun on her two new prisoners and called the police again. (Fort Fairfield Review, Fort Fairfield, ME)
