Indianapolis Metropolitan Police have arrested two people in connection with a home invasion that turned deadly for an accomplice. A 25-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man allegedly kicked in the door of a home and entered with weapons. The resident, who was at home with his fiancée during the break-in, retrieved his firearm and fired multiple times, hitting the male intruder in the abdomen. The two suspects fled and the injured man later died in a local hospital. The female and another individual were later apprehended and charged with attempted robbery with a deadly weapon. The home dweller was unharmed and cooperated with detectives. (The Indianapolis Star, Indianapolis, IN, 12/25/14)

Authorities have determined that a Pike County, Mo., woman acted in self-defense when she shot and killed a man Saturday evening at her rural Annada home. According to the police, the 38-year-old male, who was shot as many as four times in the chest, died at the scene. While the investigation continues, and additional witnesses are being sought, the woman is not expected to face charges for the defense use of her firearm. Court documents show that the local sheriff’s department issued a restraining order against the deceased back in January of this year. (Hannibal Courier-Post, Hannibal, MO, 5/25/15)

January 1983
As he was locking his San Francisco, Calif., grocery for the night, Gene Hui saw four young men charging him. He jumped into his pickup, but the gang closed in and yanked the grocer and a waiting friend to the street. Beating Hui with a bottle, a pair of the thugs tried to wrest a briefcase containing the day’s receipts from him. But Hui countered with a drawn derringer, and shot and injured the two men. Police arrested two of the suspects shortly thereafter when they sought treatment at a local hospital. (The Chronicle, San Francisco, CA)
