The Armed Citizen® January 9, 2017

Home invaders: If you’re asked to leave, save yourself a heap of trouble and just do it—or you might end up dead. That’s what happened to an intruder in Wyoming recently. A stranger entered a Sheridan, Wyo., home in the overnight hours one day. The adult male resident told the intruder to turn around and leave. The miscreant refused. The resident then armed himself with a shotgun and again asked the stranger to leave. When the interloper again refused, the armed citizen fired, fatally hitting the trespasser in the chest.

Early one evening, a couple attempted to rob a pharmacy, entering the business wearing masks and brandishing handguns. The pharmacy owner retrieved a gun and pointed it at them through the pharmacy glass, to which the suspects responded by fleeing the building and driving off. The couple was later located in their home and taken into custody. They will face charges of robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
