A 23-year-old man was the victim of a home invasion that involved three armed suspects—two women and a man—who forced their way into his home and demanded cash. In an effort to defend himself, the homeowner drew his own gun and fired multiple rounds. The male suspect was pronounced dead at the scene, while both women fled. One of the female suspects was located after seeking medical attention for a gunshot wound. It was last reported that the suspect remained hospitalized and in critical condition, while the third suspect remains at large. The resident of the burglarized home was unharmed.

An individual wearing a hooded sweatshirt and a bandana over his face entered the City Carryout around 10:30 a.m. The suspect carried a knife and demanded money from the clerk. The clerk, who was armed with a handgun, refused then ordered him to the ground. The suspect immediately complied and was detained on the floor until police arrived. He was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated robbery. The clerk remained unharmed. (Daily News, Sidney, Ohio, 8/11/14)

From The Armed Citizen® Archives June 1961: Beaumont, Texas, liquor store owner Earl R. Hudson ran for his pistol when a knife-wielding holdup man panicked and began stabbing Hudson's teenage son. Hudson fired five shots and killed the would-be bandit-murderer as the seriously wounded boy slumped to the floor. (Beaumont Journal)
