A homeowner in Ludlow, Ky., witnessed a man breaking into a car early in the morning on Dec. 5, 2022, and told the vandal he was calling police, urging him to “get out of here.” He also told the man several times he had a gun. The man reportedly responded  “I’m not scared of you” and charged at the homeowner, who feared for his life and fired at the man, striking him in the neck. The county attorney told the press, “When this person, who we can only describe as a criminal, keeps coming towards him, I think it was completely reasonable for the homeowner to fire in self-defense.” The assailant was taken to the hospital and was expected to recover from his wounds and be charged. He allegedly broke into multiple vehicles and attempted to break into a home, which was caught on video, before this altercation occurred. (WXIX Fox19, Cincinnati, Ohio, 12/14/2022)

A 22-year-old man in Philadelphia, Pa., allegedly engaged in a violent two-day crime spree, starting with carjacking a man at gunpoint around 8 p.m. on Dec. 4, 2022, then invading a retired couple’s home around midnight and shooting one of them in the leg and another in the face. The perpetrator then traveled about 10 miles and robbed a gas station convenience store around 2 a.m., and attempted to rob another one around 4 a.m. The store’s security video shows that, when the masked assailant pointed his firearm at the clerk, the clerk, who already had his gun ready due to the mask, fired at him, whereupon the suspect fled. The store clerk’s brother told reporters, “He said he was definitely scared, but something told him that he had to take action because he either did that or something worse could’ve happened.” (Fox29, Philadelphia, Pa., 12/5/2022)
