A woman in Port St. Lucie, Fla., defended herself against a vehicular assault on the night of June 28, shooting the male driver through the windshield with her self-defense gun.

Police discovered there had been an argument between the man and a woman outside a residence. The man discovered two women unloading a car and attacked one of them. The other woman ran into the house, and a third woman returned with her, armed with a gun.

The armed woman asked the man to leave. Instead, the man got into his vehicle and drove toward the woman with the gun, hitting her with his vehicle.

"As the vehicle approached the armed victim, the victim feared for her life and fired a round into the [driver's] chest through the windshield," police said. The man is expected to recover. (TCPalm, Port St. Lucie, Fla., 06/28/2020)

Asleep in an upstairs room at the rear of his Wilmington, N.C., gun shop, Charlie Todd was awakened by the sounds of roofing being ripped away.

When a man eventually kicked away a boarded-up skylight and dropped to the floor, Todd was waiting for him with a pistol. He forced the intruder to lie face-down until police arrived. (The News and Observer, Raleigh, N.C.)
