The Armed Citizen® June 7, 2019

In Milwaukee, an armed robbery turned fatal one night in mid-March. A man is accused of making arrangements with a woman to buy her computer and associated digital watch. He allegedly told the woman, to make her feel more at ease, that his girlfriend would handle the transaction. Police said the man gave his girlfriend a gun, which she pulled out while entering the woman’s car, where the items were. Both women struggled over the gun. As the girlfriend began to retreat from the car, she fired shots at the woman. However, the woman was a concealed-carry permit holder; she retrieved her own firearm and fired back, striking and killing the girlfriend. Police determined the incident was self-defense. As a result, the man was charged with felony murder involving the death of his girlfriend. (jsonline.com, Milwaukee, 3/28/29)

Johnny Williams was hired to stand guard in his uncle's Detroit restaurant last Christmas after the sixth break-in. Williams' nightly vigil paid off in April when he surprised 2 burglars in the restaurant and fired his shotgun over their heads. One fled; the other advanced and was killed with a single blast.
