The resident of a Webster, Texas, apartment defended herself and others inside when an intruder broke in on May 30, 2022.

The incident happened around 9 p.m. that Monday evening, when a man began to pound on the front door of the apartment. Eventually, the man managed to break down the front door, breaking the door frame in the process and making his way inside. Inside the home, the resident was not alone; there were also children present at the time.

Once the intruder made his way inside, fearing for herself and the others inside the apartment, the resident retrieved a firearm and fired a single shot at the home invader. Her shot met its mark, subduing the man. When police arrived on the scene afterwards, they discovered the foiled home invader deceased from his wound. (, Dallas, Texas, 05/31/2022)

Noticing the back door of his Lake Charles, La., store was wide open in the early morning hours, Von Ned took his pistol along as he investigated, having been burglarized previously. Confronting two burglars, the storekeeper ordered the pair to stop. When they continued to advance, Von Ned fired, killing one burglar and setting the other to flight. The other man was later arrested by police, who said both men were free on bond from other charges.
