A 34-year-old man was inside his mobile home in Gresham, Ore., when four armed men allegedly broke in and attacked him. According to KPTV, the resident shot at the intruders, killing one and wounding another. All three of the surviving suspects were apprehended by police.
Investigators say that they believe the armed citizen was specifically targeted by his attackers, and his life was certainly in danger—he was stabbed during the encounter, although he received no life-threatening injuries and was released from the hospital after treatment. Had he not been able to access a firearm, it is hard to imagine him surviving the attentions of four men determined to do him harm.
