Four people were leaving a Fourth of July get-together when one of them noticed a cup of liquor on top of her vehicle. When she removed the drink, a 22-year-old man attending the party next door threatened her and her friends. After shouting obscenities and threats, he briefly left the area only to return with a gun. He proceeded to fire shots at the group, injuring a 22-year-old woman. One of the males in the group retrieved his own firearm and returned fire, striking the assailant twice. The group was then able to escape the aggressor. The female victim was reportedly in stable condition after suffering wounds to the arm and back. The assailant, who now faces an attempted murder charge, was also taken to the hospital and reportedly is in critical condition. No other injuries were reported.

The Armed Citizen Extra
Two would-be robbers in Skiatook, Okla., went home empty-handed after being confronted by the man from whom they were attempting to steal. Just after midnight on Friday, the two were trying to force their way into a car parked along the street when they were interrupted by the vehicle's owner. One of the suspects pulled a gun and fired upon the owner, who, also armed, then returned fire. The perpetrators then fled the scene. According to the authorities, no injuries were sustained by either party during the exchange. The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office is still investigating and searching for the robbers. (Tulsa World, Tulsa, OK, 11/8/14)

From the Armed Citizen Archives June 1979:
Suspicious of a couple who were lingering in his San Antonio liquor store, NRA Life member James E. Moore quietly pocketed his .38. When the couple approached the counter, the woman suddenly pulled a revolver and demanded all the money in the cash register. Her accomplice then took the gun away from her and began to move toward Moore, but was momentarily distracted by the appearance of a delivery boy. Moore quickly drew his own firearm, and a gun battle ensued. When the robbers ran from the store, Moore grabbed his .45 from under the counter and gave chase, eventually aiding police in their capture. The couple was later charged in connection with two murders that occurred earlier in the week. (The News, San Antonio, TX.)
