A homeowner in Moss Point, Miss., defended himself against two armed robbers that were attempting to break into his residence on the evening of Jan. 24, 2021.
The incident occurred around 6:30 p.m. that Sunday when two armed would-be robbers approached the front door of the residence. As they approached the door, they confronted the homeowner. At that point, one of the two armed robbers fired multiple shots at the homeowner, striking him at least once in the barrage. The wounded homeowner, armed with a handgun, returned fire at the armed robbers.
One of the robbers was hit by the homeowner and collapsed into the roadway with a fatal injury. Police were called to the scene shortly after the incident where they found the deceased robber and wounded homeowner. The homeowner was taken to a local hospital for treatment and later released.

A Houston businesswoman was changing a flat tire when two men pulled over to assist. But, instead of offering help, they forced her into their car at gunpoint, blindfolded her and took her to an apartment. The men were not aware their victim had hidden a pistol inside her belt before starting to change the tire.
When they removed the blindfold, the woman drew the pistol and fired two shots, hitting neither man but sending both running. One was later arrested and the police were searching for the other. (The Houston Post, Houston, Tex.)
