Engagements

I get the sense that Fox is trying to spotlight where firearms have been used in the legitimate defense of life.

Quote:
An attempted robbery of a Tennessee home Wednesday night turned deadly when the homeowner fatally shot one of the alleged robbers, who was a convicted felon.
Terry Adams, Jr., 27, died Wednesday night in Nashville during a home invasion, the Metro Nashville Police Department said in a news release.
Adams, along with another robber who remains at large, allegedly entered the home of 43-year-old Brent Bishop through a back door and hit his wife in the face.

Police said that Bishop fired shots at the two, "fatally wounding Adams." The second robber "dropped the long guns and the pistol that had been taken from the safe and ran away."
Adams, who's had convictions of auto burglary, attempted burglary, felony theft and aggravated assault, is a suspect in a Feb. 6 burglary at Bishop's home, in which a flat screen TV was stolen.
The now-deceased robber had been arrested in July 2017 for felony meth possession for resale and unlawful gun possession by a convicted felon and was being sought by authorities for two probation violation warrants.
Bishop was hospitalized with a skull fracture from the incident. The second robber who fled the scene remains at large.

HESPERIA, Calif. (KABC) --
A homeowner shot a man who was allegedly trying to break into his Hesperia home Thursday night, and the intruder is now in critical condition.

Hesperia deputies responded to reports of a burglary in progress on Ponderosa Avenue near Chestnut Street around 10:30 p.m.

Responding deputies found the suspect, 36-year-old Michael Goode, down on the front yard of the home and suffering from a gunshot wound.

The suspect tried to gain entry through the front window of the house. The homeowner armed himself when he heard the break-in occurring, and as the suspect tried to enter the residence, the victim fired his weapon, police said.

The homeowner was not hurt. Goode was taken to the hospital in critical condition.

"As long as you protect your family and yourself, I don't see anything wrong with it," said neighbor Jesus Mejia, who also said the homeowner is a Vietnam veteran.

He said the gunshot sounded like an explosion. He went outside to see what was going on and found the intruder on the ground in front of his neighbor's home, asking for help.

Goode was arrested for a parole violation two months ago and was let out of jail four days ago. He'll likely be back behind bars if he survives, authorities said.

As for the homeowner, it appears he will not be facing charges.


"We're glad when any homeowner protects themselves, that's what they need to do in these situations," said Hesperia Police Sgt. Marc Bracco. "That's why you're allowed to carry a firearm in your residence."

Police said the incident was one of two involving an intruder and an armed resident in the area that night.

HARTSVILLE, S.C. -- Four suspects are in custody and a fifth being treated at a Hartsville area hospital following a Thursday morning burglary near Hartsville.

Darlington County Sheriff's deputies Thursday morning responded to a reported burglary at a residence on Ousleydale Road, said Lt. Robert Kilgo.

"Investigators believe the homeowner interrupted the burglary and discharged a firearm in the direction of at least one of the suspects, striking the suspect," Kilgo wrote in the release.

"The suspect's injuries are not known at this time," Kilgo wrote in the release.

The identity of the suspects was not released.

A local gunshop owner states that he will give a free box of ammo to any homeowner or CCW holder who drops a criminal. He will not comment on how many boxes he has given away.

A man “opened fire” Thursday in an Oklahoma restaurant, leaving at least four people injured, before he was fatally shot by a bystander, police said.

The gunfire unfolded at about 6:30 p.m. local time at Louie's on the Lake in Oklahoma City, Fox 25 News reported.

The unidentified shooter entered the restaurant and fired his gun, Oklahoma City Police tweeted, who later added that four people had been injured.

The man, police said, "was apparently shot-to-death by an armed citizen" outside the restaurant and there was "no indication of terrorism."

Police say a mother shot a man who tried to steal her SUV while her two toddlers were still inside the vehicle in Dallas Wednesday night.

It happened at about 10 p.m. outside a Shell service station in the 100 block of West Camp Wisdom Road.

According to police, the mother had stepped inside the gas station when a man climbed into the driver's seat and tried to drive away. The mother jumped back into the vehicle and ordered the man to stop the car, police said.

When he refused, she pulled a gun from the glove box and shot the man, who then drove the SUV into a utility pole, according to police.

AURORA, Colo. —
A man who fatally shot an intruder in his suburban Denver home early Monday was killed by responding officers who saw him holding a weapon, investigators said.
Police received multiple calls about a break-in at the home at about 1:30 a.m., and when officers arrived, they heard gunshots inside, The Aurora Sentinel reported.
Aurora police, who described the scene in a statement as “very chaotic and violent,” said they encountered an armed man and fatally shot him. That man turned out to be the person who lived in the home. A second man, the suspected intruder, was found dead during a search.

The shootout happened at 5:20 p.m. Saturday as about 150 people – including dozens of children – played on the park grounds and listened to music. Witnesses said that the gunman, possibly involved in an earlier fistfight at the same event, came back with a gun, firing toward the crowd.

An unidentified vendor with a licensed, concealed weapon, drew his gun on the shooter who was running toward the crowd and rapidly returned fire. The unnamed shooter was wounded and later taken to Holmes Regional Medical Center in Melbourne for treatment. The shooter’s condition was not immediately known Sunday.

An Indiana furniture store owner turned the tables on a would-be armed robber last month, pulling out his own firearm and forcing the suspect to bolt. According to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, the suspect walked into the store and spoke to owner Doyle Stinson on the morning of July 5. Police said the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded money.

Stinson said he gave the suspect $10 from his wallet, but the man told him: "I know you've got more money than that because this is a business." The suspect then marched Stinson to the owner's office and the back of the store. "Once he gets me back to the back room, that was a mistake," Stinson told Fox 59. "I go back here, I hit my silent alarm emergency button."


Stinson told the station that he knew the would-be robber's gun wasn't loaded. When the pair got to his office, the store owner grabbed his own .40-caliber weapon. The suspect fled the store. Stinson took aim, but didn't fire because he saw a boy in front of the store and was concerned he would be hit by a stray bullet.

Eloi meets Morlock, hilarity ensues

“I started to think why no one was helping me, ‘cause he was only hitting me, and I felt kind of angry for a moment,” she said.

Before Hamilton had much time to ponder the question, however, the man picked up a metal supply basket and hit her on the side of the head. Hamilton crumpled, and the man continued kicking her in the back. The only thought left in her mind: "I don't want to die this way."

*

Unified Police Lt. Ken Hansen confirmed later that the attacker was shot by a man in his late 60s who saw what was happening while visiting the shop for his morning coffee. The customer drew the man’s attention, and the attacker began to approach him.

As he came closer, the customer pulled out a gun and shot the attacker once in the chest, Hansen said. The man then stumbled out of the store.

Police arrived shortly after and used a Taser to take Benjamin Overall, 37, into custody. They then realized that Overall had been shot and summoned medical help for both Hamilton and Overall, Hansen said. Police believe Overall may have mental health issues, Hansen added.

*

Hamilton is grateful, however, that she’s alive. And especially grateful for the man with a gun who she said is a frequent customer.

“I know his drink," she said. "He comes in every morning and gets a large, blonde coffee in his personal cup. He’s always been very sweet. He’s always been very patient.”

Hamilton was initially surprised, however, when she heard he had shot the attacker.

“I never would have expected that from him," she said. "He just seemed like a very meek guy. So I was surprised, but also very grateful. I was very grateful that he was there. And I was glad it was somebody we see regularly so that hopefully, in the future, I can thank him.”

The customer has a concealed carry permit, Hansen said, and, though he doesn’t know for sure if the customer will face charges, he believes the shooting can be interpreted as self-defense. The customer is being “very cooperative” with police, Hansen added.

“We are thankful all partners (employees) and customers are safe after going through such a terrifying experience," Starbucks said in an emailed statement. "Our focus is on supporting our partners at this time. We are grateful local authorities were there to help and would direct any further questions their way.”

In 2013, Starbucks made a request that customers not bring firearms into its stores or outdoor eating areas, but the company specified that it was a request and not an outright ban.
