An elderly Pennsylvania homeowner shot and killed an alleged home intruder in the early hours of the morning on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2022.
Police received a call from the 72-year-old resident just after 3 a.m., who reported that there had been a home invasion and an assault. The call disconnected, but once police were able to get the homeowner back on the line, shots had been fired. The 22-year-old alleged intruder suffered a single gunshot wound and died from his injuries at the scene.
The 72-year-old assault victim was taken to an area hospital for the treatment of his injuries. (WTAJ News, Bedford County, Pa., 12/10/22)

Taking inventory inside his garage early one morning, Nicholas Salis, of Nashua, N.H., heard someone try the doors leading to the service area. Salis reached for a .45-cal. pistol, then hid while two men broke a window and entered. He yelled, “Freeze,” then held the two suspects for police. (Nashua Telegraph, Nashua, N.H.)
