When an altercation between a man and a woman escalated at Shoop's Bar, the man was escorted out. As the troublemaker was being escorted out of the building by the bar's bouncer, he turned and drew a pistol. He began firing inside the main area of the bar striking the woman, as well as two others. Aaron Childers, 25, the bar's bouncer, acted quickly, drawing his own gun and returning fire, killing the shooter. It was reported that the three injured individuals did not sustain life-threatening wounds and are expected to recover. (The Herald-Dispatch, Huntingdon, W. Va., 12/14/13)

A homeowner called police when a man with whom he had an earlier confrontation  returned to his home a second time and threatened him. Investigators believe the man returned to the home the second time with intent to assault the homeowner. The homeowner, however, fought back. He confronted the trespasser in a second effort to make him leave his property. When the confrontation became a physical altercation, the homeowner fired his gun in self-defense. The aggressor sustained a fatal gunshot wound. According to investigators, the man was currently on probation for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, and is believed to have been under the influence of methamphetamine. (The Monitor, Ben Wheeler, Texas, 4/17/14)
