On the evening of Jan. 3, authorities were called to a residence in Merced, Calif., responding to reports of an assault. A homeowner found a man sitting in a vehicle that was stuck in the mud on his property. The property owner tried to help the stranded driver get unstuck, when suddenly the stranger became angry and grabbed an axe from the trunk of his vehicle. According to officials with the sheriff’s office, the driver allegedly began swinging the axe in a threatening way and the property owner, who is a concealed-carry permit holder, shot the axe-wielding man in self-defense. Upon arrival, deputies assisted the assailant, who had a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, until the paramedics arrived. (, Fresno, Calif., 1/3/23)

On Dec. 13, 2022, in Eastpointe, Mich., an unreported number of suspects allegedly approached the driver of a Dodge Charger Hellcat and attempted a carjacking, whereupon a shootout occurred between the assailants and the Hellcat’s driver, who was a concealed-pistol license holder. One of the suspects—a 27-year-old man—was wounded before driving away in a stolen Chevy Impala. He later showed up at a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg, but left before authorities could arrive. Police officers and special investigators were able to track the stolen Impala to a home, where they then witnessed the suspect driving it away. Authorities were able to arrest the suspect without incident. During the execution of a search warrant, authorities found evidence of the attempted carjacking inside the stolen vehicle. The suspect was taken into custody and charged with assault with intent to murder and felony firearm possession, with a bond set at $750,000 with GPS monitoring. (, New York, N.Y., 12/18/22)
