While walking down the sidewalk, a military service member was assaulted by a man he did not know. As he was walking around 3 p.m., he was approached by a stranger, who proceeded to verbally assault him before physically striking him in the head. The attack was reportedly unprovoked. The service member, also a concealed-carry permit holder, pulled out his firearm detaining the assailant until police arrived and arrested him. (The Olympian, Olympia, WA, 5/31/13)

A man who authorities say was hallucinating and talking about zombies broke into an Orange County home where he was fatally shot by the homeowner. The couple awoke to hear the intruder screaming in their backyard and the wife called 911 as her husband confronted him. The intruder threatened the couple and broke into the home by shattering a rear sliding glass door. The husband then fatally shot the intruder. (Fresnobee.com, Yorba Linda, CA, 10/29/13)

October 1983: A would-be rapist awoke Claudine Hale in her Baltimore apartment, grabbed her by the throat and threatened to harm the children sleeping in the same room. Hale struggled with the assailant, then managed to reach a handgun, which she used to halt the attack. He fled after being shot, and a suspect was found dead nearby. Baltimore authorities declined to press charges against the woman. (The Evening Sun, Baltimore, Md.)
