The Armed Citizen® September 15, 2017

What started off as a regular workday for a county courthouse judge quickly turned into a self-defense emergency. Around 8 a.m. on a Monday morning, the judge was walking through a narrow alley next to the courthouse heading inside when a man got out of his car in a nearby bank parking lot and opened fire at him. The judge, a concealed-carry permit holder, immediately returned fire. A nearby probation officer stepped in and killed the criminal. An accomplice, who was sitting in the car waiting for the shooter, was taken into custody. (The Philadelphia Inquirer, Steubenville, OH, 8/28/17)
