In Gainesville, Ga., the morning of Oct. 17, 2022, officers received a call that a man armed with knives was damaging cars and threatening people in a neighborhood. Medical personnel were at the scene tending to one person’s injuries when the assailant reportedly began attacking them. An armed citizen witnessed this attack and shot the perpetrator. Police charged the suspect with criminal attempt to commit murder, two counts of obstruction of an EMT, possession of a gun during the commission of a crime, possession of a knife during the commission of a crime and aggravated assault. Police did not release the identity of the armed citizen. “They’re very brave for doing that. It takes a lot to take that on yourself,” said one neighbor. “I’m thankful they did it for the safety of others.” (Fox 5 Atlanta, Atlanta, Ga., 10/17/2022)

During the early-morning hours of Oct. 27, 2022, a young man wearing a ski mask and brandishing a firearm reportedly broke into an apartment in Kokomo, Ind. However, he shortly encountered three other men, who tackled him and knocked his gun away. The assailant reportedly pulled a second gun out, which was fired during the altercation but did not strike anyone. One of the defenders grabbed his own gun and used it to subdue the intruder until police could arrive. The incident was still being investigated, but the suspect was charged with a level-2 felony burglary charge after receiving medical treatment. (Fox 35, Orlando, Fla., 10/29/2022)
