A mobile home in Westminster, Vt., was the scene of a shooting around 11 a.m. March 14. The homeowner was inside when a man and a woman allegedly broke into his home. The homeowner was able to arm and defend himself, shooting at the duo and striking the male. The injured man was taken to a nearby hospital but was subsequently taken by helicopter to a medical center in New Hampshire for treatment. Upon release from the hospital, police arrested the intruder on burglary charges. He was then transferred to the Department of Corrections for violating furlough (a legal structure that allows convicted criminals to serve time outside of jail with supervision).

In Chicago, Ill., on the evening of March 24, a taxi driver arrived to pick up a fare. However, when three men got into the taxi, one of them produced a gun and demanded that the driver give them his car. The driver, a concealed-carry holder, drew his own firearm and fired at the man trying to carjack him, striking him in the forearm and hip. During the chaos, the other two would-be carjackers jumped out of the car and fled the scene before the taxi collided with two other vehicles. The wounded suspect was taken to the hospital in good condition. A second suspect was taken into custody a short time later and charges for both were pending. ( and, Chicago, Ill., 3/24/22)
