A good Samaritan came to the aid of a neighbor during a domestic dispute that ended in the death of the aggressor. In Gonzales, La., a man in his home heard people arguing outside. He went to investigate. The neighbor approached the two people—a man and a woman—who were arguing and was accosted by the male. The instigator pointed a handgun at the good Samaritan, who in turn drew his own firearm and shot. When police officers arrived, they determined that the man who had been arguing with the woman was dead. The police said that charges would not be filed against the armed citizen, saying that he ended a dispute that might have led to the death of the woman. (ABC 2, Gonzales, LA, 8/20/16)

Around 6:45 p.m. on a Friday, two people in their car were approached by a young man and robbed at gunpoint. According to a police spokeswoman, one of the robbery victims was legally armed and shot the suspect. The suspect was driven to the hospital by a friend and pronounced dead on arrival. An investigation is ongoing, but the robbery victim who shot the suspect was not arrested. (The News Tribune, Tacoma, WA, 10/8/16)

November 1960
Three young East St. Louis, Ill., armed men, plotting a robbery, drove to Ulles Akins’ grocery “because it looked easy.” While one stayed near the getaway car, two donned masks, entered the store, and pulled a gun on the proprietor. Akins dived behind the counter and came up firing his cal. .38 revolver. Police found one man dead on the floor. (East St. Louis Journal, East St. Louis, IL)
