The Armed Citizen® April 8, 2019

In the early morning hours in Temecula, Calif., a retired Marine awoke to the sounds of a break-in. Arming himself with a handgun, the homeowner went to confront two would-be burglars who had entered his rural residence. One of the suspects opened fire on the Marine. This act resulted in a shootout inside the home. After emptying his firearm, the homeowner retreated to another room, as the two suspects fled. One of the suspected attackers, who apparently had been hit by the armed citizen during the incident, was taken to the hospital for treatment with gunshot injuries. Sheriff’s deputies responded to an emergency call at the residence and alerted local hospitals to watch for suspicious people with gunshot injuries. Deputies soon learned of a man at a hospital who was believed to have been involved in the shootout with the retired Marine, and an investigation was launched into the incident.

In what appears to be an increasing trend amongst would-be thieves, a man was forced to kill an assailant he was meeting up with, purportedly to buy a PlayStation. According to police, after linking up with the man on an online reselling app, the buyer drove to an apartment complex to pick up the purchase, but instead was approached in his vehicle by a masked man with a rifle. A concealed-carry permit holder, the man drew his own firearm and began shooting, which proved fatal to his attacker. (abc13.com, Houston, Texas, 03/27/19)

Though dazed, he removed a revolver from a desk and confronted the would-be robbers. They fled the premises, pursued by Seabrook, who apprehended the male bandit and one female accomplice.
