An Arkansas man is dead after encountering an armed homeowner in Kansas, Okla., ready and willing to defend the property.

On the evening of Tuesday, May 2, the 20-year-old suspect was allegedly involved in an incident outside the home in question. After the incident, the man allegedly made his way into the home and got into a physical altercation with the homeowner. The armed resident fired shots at the assailant, killing him in the process.

From the Armed Citizen® Archives – September 1982

Rev. Charles White, 67, thought the man who had come to his Philadelphia church wanted counseling. But what he really wanted was cash, he said, as he drew a gun on the Baptist clergyman. But the cleric pulled a .25 instead of loot and killed the would-be robber with a shot to the chest. (The Tribune, Chicago, Ill.)
