He attempted to get the intruder to leave, but the man instead attacked the homeowner, who then fired at the assailant and killed him. The homeowner was treated for minor bruising and abrasions, and the investigation was still ongoing at the time of reporting. (, Indianopolis, Ind., 10/16/23)

No charges had been filed at the time of reporting. (, Tucson, Ariz., 10/13/23)
