On Oct. 22, a Virginia man allegedly forced his way into an apartment after 9 p.m. when a tenant shot him in the leg, according to the Scott County Sheriff’s Office. The suspect, who fled the scene on foot, was apprehended nearby by police less than an hour later. After being treated for minor injuries, the suspect was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit larceny. The suspect reportedly knew the tenant and had a criminal history. The armed citizen is disabled and acted in self-defense, according to investigators. (wjhl.com, Johnson City, Tenn., 10/22/2019; wcyb.com, Bristol, Va., 10/23/2019

A man in Glen Burnie, Md. was forced into action while feeding his chickens in the back yard early on a Thursday morning. His bulldog began frantically barking as sounds of a struggle emanated from inside his home. He went up to the front door of his house and peered in to find two men holding down his 28 year old fiancé, both armed—one with a gun and one with a knife. Reacting quickly, he slammed the door open and retrieved an antique 1940s shotgun loaded with buckshot. He chased them off his fiancé and fired at the men, prompting them to flee and injuring one in the legs. The police were called shortly after. His fiancé went to the local hospital with minor injuries, and the wounded suspect also went to the hospital. (Capital Gazette, Annapolis, Maryland, 11/07/2019)

When a man walked behind the drug counter of William Deeg’s Evansville, Ill., pharmacy, pulled a butcher knife and demanded codeine, Deeg drew his .38 pistol and ordered him to stop. Knife in hand the would-be thief continued to advance, and Deeg shot twice, killing him instantly. Local police records showed the holdup man had 41 previous arrests.
