Everton Mosby, 24, was approached by two men outside of his home around 2 a.m. They forced Mosby inside the home where they beat him. During the assault, Mosby was able to pull out his concealed firearm. He fired at his attackers, striking both of them. One suspect was pronounced dead at the scene. The second assailant was treated for a gunshot wound to the knee before being placed under arrest. It was reported that the surviving suspect had been previously convicted of charges including breaking and entering, theft, criminal damaging and felonious assault.

Shortly before 7:30 p.m., a 62-year-old homeowner and his girlfriend were in their living room when a homeless man entered the home without invitation. He was armed with a knife. As his girlfriend dialed 911, the homeowner grabbed his shotgun and ordered the intruder to get out of his house. The intruder pushed the homeowner down, the girlfriend then pushed the intruder onto the porch where he picked up a machete belonging to the homeowner. After recovering from his fall, the homeowner hit the intruder over the head with the shotgun and held him at gunpoint until deputies arrived. "This couple did what they had to do to protect themselves under very dangerous conditions," the Sheriff said. "This is another example of why citizens need to take all possible precautions and be prepared if something like this occurs." It was reported that the homeless man had been highly intoxicated at the time of the incident. (KOMO News, Centralia, Wash., 6/30/14)
