Two men forced their way into a home early one afternoon and began to assault the resident. During the scuffle, the resident managed to pull a handgun from his pocket and fire it multiple times. Both men fled the scene on foot. The body of Jacob Clark was found a short distance from the residence; he had suffered a single gunshot to the chest. The second alleged intruder, Joey Pugh, 18, was not injured. He was caught soon after the incident, arrested and charged with aggravated burglary. (Knoxville News Sentinel, Crossville, Tenn., 5/23/12)

November 1969: Mrs. Katharine Lawrence, 72, of Atlanta, Ga., went to her bedroom and obtained a pistol when a man kept beating on her front door and demanding a drink of water. When the intruder kicked in a window and threatened to kill her, Mrs. Lawrence fatally wounded him. (Constitution, Atlanta, Ga.)

August 1987: A man entered Jim Barr's La Habra, Calif., jewelry store to ask for directions. But when an accomplice entered and pulled a gun, Barr grabbed a .38 revolver from a shelf only to come under fire from the two robbers in the store and two others outside, who smashed a window with a sledgehammer. After the store owner emptied his revolver, the robbers fled. (The Register, Orange County, Calif.)
