The Armed Citizen® November 20, 2017

A thug from York, Pa., learned that a baseball bat isn’t much against an armed citizen. The 23-year-old suspect had been the guest of a young man who lived with his mother in a Lower Paxton Township subdivision. Apparently, the bad guy’s last day started by getting into an argument with his host, because the police received a 9-1-1 call from a male who reported that someone was trying to kill him. Officers were sent out, but before they arrived another call for help came in to the dispatcher—this call was about an elderly woman being beaten in the driveway of the same address. Shortly thereafter, police got a call about a shooting at a neighboring house. The assailant reportedly used the bat to assault the woman, then he sought refuge in a nearby abode after hearing sirens. The resident of that house shot the intruder in the stomach after he broke down the door with the bat. The bad guy died at the hospital; the elderly woman was hospitalized with head trauma and a broken arm. (pennlive.com, Harrisburg, PA, 9/12/17)
