Early one morning, a family awoke to the sound of a trespasser banging on the back door of their home attempting to break in. The homeowner grabbed a shotgun and held the intruder at gunpoint while his wife called 9-1-1. The individual was charged with residential entry. (The Courier-Times, New Castle, IN, 5/9/17)

June 1971
Daniel Booth, 61, manager of a motel in San Francisco, Calif., was working late in his locked office when a man approached, saying he had car trouble. When Booth came out to help, the man pulled a gun, forced Booth back inside, and pushed him to the floor. Booth grabbed a pistol and fired three times, wounding the holdup man.
