Armed with handguns, the offenders began assaulting the owner and employee. Luckily, an armed patron happened to be in the building, and he opened fire on the two attackers. Both men fled through the back door. Police and EMS found one attacker nearby, and he was subsequently declared deceased at the scene. (Citizen’s News, Prospect, Conn., 12/13/18)

An online scammer attempted to rob the wrong person in Galveston County, Texas, early one Tuesday morning. The would-be criminal listed an iPhone on an online retail site for $500, and when someone expressed interest in the transaction, agreed to meet him in a rural area northwest of Santa Fe. Upon arrival however, the robber gave his customer an empty iPhone box, before attempting to rob him of the $500. Unfortunately for him, his intended victim was a well-armed and licensed concealed-carry holder, who shot them three times. The man was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
