Two men forced their way into a home early one afternoon and began to assault the resident. During the scuffle, the resident managed to pull a handgun from his pocket and fire it multiple times. Both men fled the scene on foot. The body of Jacob Clark was found a short distance from the residence; he had suffered a single gunshot to the chest. The second alleged intruder, Joey Pugh, 18, was not injured. He was caught soon after the incident, arrested and charged with aggravated burglary.

August 1987: A man entered Jim Barr's La Habra, Calif., jewelry store to ask for directions. But when an accomplice entered and pulled a gun, Barr grabbed a .38 revolver from a shelf only to come under fire from the two robbers in the store and two others outside, who smashed a window with a sledgehammer. After the store owner emptied his revolver, the robbers fled. (The Register, Orange County, Calif.)
