Two young, masked men entered a store on March 30 a little after noon and approached a man waiting for an order, intending to rob him. One of the men struck the waiting man in the head with a gun, and a struggle ensued. The would-be robber handed his firearm to his accomplice in an attempt to gain control of the situation. The victim, a licensed concealed-carry holder, took advantage of this brief delay and drew his own firearm, shooting his attacker twice in the abdomen. The suspect was taken to a nearby hospital where he died from his injuries. The second would-be robber ran from the store after the shooting and had not yet been captured.

On the night of March 21, a 22-year-old man allegedly tried to break into a rural home in Perry, Iowa. The family was settling in for the night when the stranger tried to enter. The homeowner was able to retrieve his firearm and defend his family, shooting the suspect multiple times. The wounded man was taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Once released from the hospital, he was charged with third-degree burglary, fourth-degree criminal mischief and simple assault. (, Des Moines, Iowa, 3/21/22)
