The Armed Citizen® June 4, 2018

In South Carolina, an alleged burglar, who broke a window and tried to enter a Greenville County home, was shot by the armed homeowner. Police documents say the suspect was armed with a knife and threatened the lives of the people in the home before one of them shot in self-defense. The trespasser, who was charged with burglary and related crimes, is reported to have been released from jail on parole several weeks before the incident. (foxcarolina.com, Greenville, SC, 3/20/18)

Early one Saturday night, three men attempted to burglarize a house in Southeast Albuquerque, N.M. Unfortunately for them, one of the residents stopped them before they could do any damage. When the men held the resident’s grandmother at gunpoint, he immediately shot at them, hitting one. All three intruders fled the scene, two on foot and the other by car. The wounded burglar was eventually taken to a hospital, where he died, while the one who fled by car was caught by police and later charged with aggravated burglary, conspiracy and tampering with evidence. The third burglar was still on the run as of press time. (Albuquerque Journal, Albuquerque, NM, 2/16/18)

June 1961
A 16-year-old boy entered Joseph LaCour’s St. Louis, Mo., drugstore and asked to see some watches. As LaCour turned, the youth pulled a cal. .32 revolver and said, “This is a holdup.” LaCour dropped to the floor, took his own pistol, shot the lad in the hand, and held him for police. The young holdup man then admitted participating in six other robberies. (St. Louis Globe-Democrat, St. Louis, MO)
