A home invasion went wrong for the would-be burglars when they encountered multiple armed residents inside of a Seattle, Wash., house early on June 26, 2023.

According to police, around 3:30 a.m., several armed suspects entered the house in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood. Inside, they encountered the residents, who were armed and began to exchange gunfire with the intruders. The suspects fled, and by the time police arrived on scene, they were unable to locate the alleged burglars.

Approximately 15 minutes after the robbery was reported, an individual with multiple gunshot wounds was dropped off at a local hospital. The person could not provide police with any information about how they were shot. (KATU2 News; Seattle, Wash.; 6/26/23)

From the Armed Citizen® Archives – November 1962

After beating and robbing 66-year-old Fred Yeager in Los Angeles, a pair of hoodlums forced the elderly man to take them to his place of business to get more money. When they arrived, Yeager grabbed a .38 pistol and began firing as the pair fled. He stopped one of his assailants with a fatal bullet in the chest. (Los Angeles Herald-Examiner)
