The Armed Citizen® May 7, 2018

An armed citizen in Maryland said he would have been content to “give [an intruder] a pass“ if only the troublemaker had stayed away from the bedroom. But when the suspect crashed through the bedroom door, the retired teacher said he had no choice. He fired, hitting the burglar twice. The resident had woken up around midnight to take some medicine when he heard noises and thought an animal was scuttling around outside. However, he then heard someone walking through the house. The homeowner holed up in his bedroom, but he had his gun at the ready. The evildoer fled through the basement and was caught later by police. (wusa9.com, Washington, D.C., 1/31/18)
