The Armed Citizen® July 22, 2016

Charges are not expected to be filed against a Lumber Bridge, N.C., woman who shot and killed an intruder after returning home from running errands. The resident, who happens to be a military wife, came home to find a strange Jeep parked in her driveway, which prompted her to draw her handgun and investigate. Entering her home, the woman encountered the male thief in a hallway and fired on him. Police are having difficulty identifying the culprit because he had no identification on him, but they have determined that the Jeep he was driving had previously been reported stolen. No injuries to the resident were reported. (The Fayetteville Observer, Fayetteville, NC, 1/29/16)

April 1959

Ricco Bruce, proprietor of a lodge near Fowler, Calif., became suspicious when one man entered his bar and bought a drink while another waited outside in a car. Going to the rear of the lodge, Bruce loaded a shotgun that he had kept on hand since being robbed early last year and started back toward the bar. Before he got there he was met by the suspicious man, who now had a pistol in his hand. The bandit fired but missed. Bruce then shot once and the thief fell dead; his accomplice in the vehicle immediately fled the scene. The sheriff’s department later revealed that the dead man was a parolee.
