Matt Dosser was walking by a neighborhood market around 9:30 p.m. when he witnessed two men pounding on the window, trying to get in. The owner of the market, Mohamed Ahmed, was inside screaming for help. Dosser said, "At first, nothing made sense, then I saw the gun." Dosser realized that the two men had attempted to rob the market, but somehow got locked out when Ahmed fought back. Eager to help Ahmed, who was trapped inside and bleeding from the head, Dosser pulled out his concealed firearm. When the suspects saw Dosser's firearm, they fled the scene. Ahmed had been hit in the head with one of the suspect's pistols. After a few surgical staples, Ahmed was expected to recover from his injury. Dosser was unharmed during the attempted robbery.

A guest staying at a Motel 6 was standing in a rear parking lot when he was approached by a man asking for a cigarette. When the hotel guest told the man that he didn't have any cigarettes, the man pulled out a gun, pointed it in the guest's direction and responded by saying, "I bet you don't have one of these." The guest, however, was in fact carrying his own concealed firearm. He fired at the armed aggressor, striking him twice. The assailant fled on foot, but was later picked up by an ambulance and hospitalized for his gunshot wounds. The motel guest was not injured during the stick up.
