Bennett Valley Jewelry Store had two armed-robbery attempts in one year. In the most recent attempt, three employees were in the store when two suspects walked in, one of them armed with a handgun. A confrontation ensued and shots were fired between the armed suspect and a jewelry store employee. A female employee was treated at the hospital and released, while one suspect suffered life-threatening injuries. The other suspect left his wounded accomplice behind and drove away in a stolen convertible, which he quickly abandoned. The incident triggered a wide-area search using K-9 officers. The wife of a co-owner of the store said, "You don't think this is ever going to happen again." [The Press Democrat, Santa Rosa, Calif., 7/11/2014]

From the Armed Citizen, NRA Official Journals: Jonathan Haith was sleeping at home around 9:45 p.m. when he heard a light knock on his back door. He ignored the knock at first, but a louder noise from his laundry room got his attention. The loud bang was the sound of an intruder kicking in the door. Haith quickly grabbed his AR-15 from under his bed and crouched down as he made his way down the hallway. When he peeked around the corner at the end of the hallway, he saw the intruder standing there with a gun. The intruder panicked upon spotting Haith and fired at him, prompting Haith to return fire. The intruder was struck in the stomach, causing him to flee the home before collapsing nearby. It was last reported that his condition was unclear. Haith was uninjured during the incident. "I guess I did the right thing," Haith said. "I just reacted the best way possible." (WRAL.com, Henderson, NC, 5/12/14)

From the Armed Citizen Archives April 1986:Police had just left after two intruders were chased from Fran Foster's Houston, Texas, home. The 76-year-old Foster heard a scream and ran into the next room where he found one of the burlars was back, stabbing his wife. Foster, though severely beaten, managed to shoot the assailant four times. Both he and Mrs. Foster recovered; the burglars were imprisoned. (The Post, Houston, Texas)
