The Armed Citizen® July 8, 2019

ILumberton, N.C., two men entered a home early in the evening. The two located the tenant of the residence inside the home’s garage, which was in the back yard. The pair confronted the man with the intent to rob him, but were unprepared when the tenant drew his own gun and shot one of the suspects in the leg. Both men fled the area. When police arrived on scene, they found the injured home-invader, a 26-year-old local man, lying in the backyard with a potentially life-threatening injury. He was transported to a local hospital where he was listed in stable condition. Police were able to later identify and arrest the second attacker, who was charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and felony conspiracy. A $100,000 bond was set. Police were continuing their investigation. (wmbfnews.com, Myrtle Beach, S.C., 5/8/19)

The occupants of a Waterbury, Conn., cafe were accosted by a pair of armed men and forced to lie on the floor. With his accomplice posted by the door, a pistol-wielding hoodlum removed money from behind the counter and took cash from the customers and owner. One patron began arguing, and as a scuffle ensued, the owner retrieved a revolver. Firing three shots, he drove the would-be robbers from his establishment. (The Republican, Waterbury, Conn.)
