The Armed Citizen

A gas-station store clerk in Beaumont, Texas, called 911 near midnight on July 22 after a man entered the store, threatened her with a knife and robbed her. While police were on the way, however, the robber apparently proceeded to attack the clerk, who defended herself by firing several shots at him. Police took the 62-year-old suspect to the hospital with serious injuries and charged him with aggravated robbery. The clerk suffered minor wounds but recovered. (, Beaumont, Texas, 07/23/22)

A man was sitting on a bench on a train platform in Salt Lake City, Utah, around 10 p.m. on July 2 when two other men aggressively approached him. Video camera feeds show the armed citizen pointing his firearm at the men and repeatedly telling them to stop, even backing up several feet, but the aggressors increased their speed toward him. Fearing for his life, the man shot the two men, one of whom was killed and one of whom was taken to the hospital in critical condition. The area is becoming known as a dangerous place, including one unprovoked incident wherein a stranger stabbed a woman 16 times while she was buying a train ticket. The district attorney said the armed citizen who shot the two men in this case will not be charged. (, Salt Lake City, Utah, 7/28/22)
