Canada was not injured during the robbery. (Pine Bluff Commercial, Dumas, AR, 10/19/13)

Gregory Lindsey, 29, was at home when a group of six youths tried breaking into his home. Lindsey's teenage son was downstairs doing his homework at the time of the attempted break-in. Lindsey heard the suspects trying to force their way inside, so he retrieved his semi automatic .22 and confronted them. Upon seeing the firearm, the group scattered. No one was injured and no shots were fired during the incident. (Clickondetroit.com, Detroit, Mich., 3/31/14)

Rivezo fired three shots from a revolver, for which he had a permit. One fell dead and the gang scattered. (Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Journal)
