A woman defended herself from an exposed trespasser at her apartment on the afternoon of Monday July, 20 in Port Arthur, Tex. It started when the woman heard a knock at the apartment door and went to answer it.
When she opened the door, the woman found a naked man standing outside. The naked man then proceeded to enter the residence without the woman's permission. In response to the nude man's uninvited entry, the woman produced a firearm and shot at the intruder. The shot struck the man, prompting him to leave the residence.
The woman then called authorities who arrived at the apartment complex shortly after the incident. There, police found the naked man nearby with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to his lower extremities. The man was transported to a local hospital for treatment and no arrests were made in the incident. (12 News Now, Beaumont, Tex., 07/20/2020 From the Armed Citizen® Archives April 1962
Douglas Zeman, a college sophomore, was in his family's living quarters to the rear of their grocery store in Chicago, Ill., when he overheard men's voices in the store tell his parents they were being robbed.
As the bandits, three of them, marched the couple toward the rear of the building at gunpoint, Zeman took a .38-cal. revolver and hid in the bathroom. When the gunmen came into sight, the student killed one of them with shots at close range. The others managed to escape empty-handed. (Chicago Tribune)
