A man in Chicago, Ill., was seated in his truck at nearly 6 a.m. on Dec. 5, 2022, smoking a cigarette with his window down, when a dark sedan pulled up next to him and two males got out while two remained in the vehicle. One man allegedly pointed a .45-cal. pistol with an extended magazine at his intended victim’s head while demanding property, but the man fought back, grabbing the gun. The assailant called out for help from the others with him, at which point the armed citizen in the truck pulled out his own firearm and fired three rounds. He struck two of the males in their shoulders and one in the temple. The driver of the crime vehicle sped off despite his head wound, but struck a fence, breaking the passenger’s leg in the wreck. Three of the perpetrators were charged with attempted robbery, while the fourth was still in the hospital. The vehicle was found to have been used in other robberies in the area as well.

Residents in St. Charles, Mich., called police around 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 25, 2022, to report a “disorderly” man jumping on a car and yelling. However, before officers arrived, the man allegedly broke into a nearby home occupied by a 41-year-old woman and two children. Two neighbors who were concealed-carry-license holders rushed to the family’s aid and detained the crazed man at gunpoint. Police praised the neighbors’ intervention and said the home invader appeared to be under the influence of drugs. He was to be charged with home invasion and malicious destruction of property.
