A 35-year-old woman called 911 after a man followed her home from a gas station and forced his way inside through the front door. The woman allegedly ordered the man to leave then retreated to her bedroom. The intruder picked up a knife from the kitchen table and followed her. It was reported that he threatened the woman with the knife and ordered her to take off her clothes. She warned the man that she would shoot him, but he continued to push her to undress. She retrieved a 9 mm handgun from underneath a pillow on her bed and pointed it at the intruder. When he continued toward her, she pulled the trigger. The suspect was fatally wounded.

A man with a concealed carry permit held two people at gunpoint Tuesday after they rammed him on Highway 29 in Wausau and then beat him in a road rage incident, according to police. A 49-year-old man called 911 saying the van he had passed was ramming his SUV from behind. The dispatcher told the caller to pull over and wait for officers. The couple in the car followed, and proceeded to hit and stab him with car keys. The driver then pulled out his gun and held them at gunpoint until the police arrived and arrested the two.

From The Armed Citizen Archives

February 1960: In 1956 a bandit who robbed Decatur, Ill., liquor clerk James W. Miller of $1052 was captured 3 days later and sentenced to prison. Recently paroled from his 20-year term, the bandit returned to the Decatur store with drawn pistol and again announced a stickup. Miller, unrecognized by his old assailant, dropped to the floor and came up firing a cal. .32 pistel, felling the paroled felon with four bullet wounds. (The Review, Decatur, IL)
