The Armed Citizen® July 25, 2014

Billy McCall, 78, was at home when he heard his wife scream. McCall grabbed his .380-cal. handgun and went to his wife's aid. He found that a man had forced his way into their home and seized his wife in a choke hold. The armed intruder fired at McCall striking him in his stomach. McCall returned fire, causing the intruder to flee. The assailant was later dropped off at a local hospital where he died. He had sustained gunshot wounds to his abdomen, leg and chest. McCall is reported to be in stable condition and is expected to survive the gunshot wound he sustained during the home invasion. Mrs. McCall was reportedly uninjured.

Two men kicked in the front door of a home around 12:45 p.m., and were met by an armed homeowner. The men, armed with a handgun, reportedly knew the homeowner's daughter and had been harassing her. When the gun-wielding homeowner caught them inside his  home, they fled the scene. Both men, however, were arrested soon thereafter on suspicion of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault.
