When a 20-year-old suspect entered a convenience store, confronted the owner and attempted to pistol whip him, the would-be victim retrieved his own gun, called 9-1-1 and kept the suspect inside the store until police could arrive. The suspect was arraigned on charges of armed robbery and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon. (Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod, MA, 9/12/14)

4/3/15
Deputies were dispatched to a neighborhood in Bermuda Dunes, Calif., after the authorities received calls about a prowler in the area. While still on route, they received another call from the same area from a woman who said their home was in the process of being robbed and that her husband had just shot the culprit. Deputies arrived and found the burglar inside the house with two gunshot wounds. He would later die at a nearby hospital. The homeowners have cooperated with the authorities’ investigation, and no charges are expected to be filed against the male resident for the defensive use of his firearm. (Press Enterprise, Riverside County, CA, 2/8/15)

From the Armed Citizen® Archives
May 1966:
Joseph Bausone, manager of a Dallas, Texas package goods store, was approached by a man who ordered a bottle of whiskey. As Bausone turned to fill the order, the intruder drew a pistol and demanded that the shopkeeper open the register. At that moment, a passerby looked into the store and saw the holdup in progress. The thug fired one shot at Bausone, who dove under the counter and came up with his own gun and got off four quick shots. The would-be bandit staggered out of the store and fell dead.
