Krick's Korner, a local convenience store, was open around 2 p.m. when two men wearing masks entered. They held the store clerk at gunpoint and demanded money, cigarettes and lottery tickets. Meanwhile, a man exiting a nearby apartment building saw the robbery taking place. He quickly drew his concealed firearm and ordered the robbers to stop as they made their way outside. They turned their guns on the concerned citizen, prompting him to fire his gun. Both robbers sustained fatal gunshot wounds to the chest. No other injuries were reported. (Reading Eagle, Reading, Pa., 11/5/13)

A man attempting to make contact with his ex-wife was issued a verbal trespassing warning after police were called to the home of Jason Brown. Shortly after the warning, the ex-husband returned to Brown's home. He kicked in the front door, prompting Brown to fire two rounds from his firearm. The intruder sustained gunshot wounds to the chest. He was taken to a local hospital to undergo treatment and will face charges upon his release. No other injuries were reported.
