A man in his early 30s entered Armen's House of Music one afternoon, looked around and left. He returned just a few minutes later with a wooden club and began attacking the owner's wife, Sylvia Armen, who was working in the store at the time. The owner, Alfred Armen, heard the commotion and ran to his wife's aid. He tried to defend his wife and fought with the suspect before shooting him fatally. Mr. and Mrs. Armen were later taken to a hospital with head injuries and are expected to recover. According to police, there was no motive behind the attack. (WTAE.com, Bethel Park, PA, 4/27/13)

A Montana homeowner arrived at his home to find a suspicious car parked outside. He entered the home, encountered an intruder and shot him in the chest, according to the deputy. The intruder managed to flee the home out a window and into his car, only to crash his Ford into a fence. He was found dead in the car a short time later by emergency responders.

From The Armed Citizen Archives

October 1980: Seventy-year-old Baxter Blagg was preparing to retire when a man climbed through the bedroom window of his home and aimed a revolver at his head. When his wife rushed through the room, distracting the intruder, Blagg was able to snatch his .38 from beneath a pillow. He fired and fatally wounded his assailant, who turned out to be an escaped convict. (The Tribune, Tulsa, OK)
