    COOS BAY — Two people were arrested after deputies were called to a report of a burglary.

    In a press release from the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to Flagstaff Road in Coos Bay on Saturday, May 11 at 10:22 p.m. on a report of a burglary to an occupied home.

    When law enforcement arrived, at least one person had broken into the house through the basement door while two others stayed outside.

    Boyfriend shot in south Fort Worth

    Fort Worth police investigate at the scene of a shooting Wednesday on Clovermeadow Drive. By Emerson Clarridge
    Fort Worth
    Believing that her boyfriend was retrieving knives to cut her, a woman shot him Wednesday inside their south Fort Worth house, police said.

    The woman shot the man five times, in his torso and his arm, Fort Worth police said. The man was in critical condition in the minutes after he was shot and was in surgery at John Peter Smith Hospital. Police did not release his name or age.

    The woman was being interviewed by family violence unit detectives.

    The violence erupted about 11 a.m. in the house near Clovermeadow and Shadymeadow Drives, police said.

    The man made a threat to harm his girlfriend during a dispute, police said.

    When the woman, whose name and age police also did not release, believed that her boyfriend went downstairs to get knives, she went upstairs and “grabbed the gun that they keep in the house,” police said.

    The investigation continues and no charges had been announced Wednesday afternoon.

    Unified Police officials responded to the scene of the shooting of a man who man allegedly barged into his ex-girlfriend's Midvale apartment on Saturday, May 18, 2019. Photo: Gephardt Daily/Monico Garza/SLCScanner
    MIDVALE, Utah, May 17, 2019 (Gephardt Daily) — A man was transported to a Murray hospital after police say he barged into his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and was shot twice by another man inside.

    Unified Police Department Lt. Manfred Lassig, said officials responded at about 1:30 a.m. Saturday to a call of shots fired at 134 W. Plum Tree Lane (approximately 6900 South), Midvale.


    The woman lived at the apartment complex, Sgt. Manfred Lassig, Unified Police Department, told Gephardt Daily at the scene.

    “Apparently, her ex-boyfriend had showed up,” Lassig said. “She was in the apartment with another male. He (the ex) was banging on the door, and when they opened the door, he barged in.

    “A struggle ensued, and the other male that was in the apartment shot the ex-boyfriend, twice. He has been transported to IMC.”

    At the time of transport, the victim was in critical condition, Lassig said, adding that both shots were in the leg.

    Lassig said any charges to be filed with be determined by investigators and the District Attorney’s Office. The shooting could be classified as self-defense depending on the circumstances.

    The shooter and the apartment resident were cooperating with police, Lassig said.

    “Detectives are interviewing him. We recovered the weapon. We will go from there.”

    Woman says intruder has tried to break into her home twice days apart

    A homeowner said someone tried to break into her house for the second in a little over a week-- until she shot at the would-be intruder and scared him away.

    Channel 2's Alyssa Hyman is in East Point, where Tiffany Wiseman said she barricaded her door to keep anyone from getting in again after her Heritage Park house was broken into earlier this month. She also armed herself.

    Police say at least five similar break-ins have occurred in the same neighborhood.

    LEE COUNTY, Fla. - A Lehigh Acres man was arrested in connection to an attempted robbery at a 7-Eleven in Gateway.

    Malcolm Smith, 23, is being held in jail on a robbery charge without a firearm or weapon.

    The attempted robbery occurred in the 7-Eleven parking lot off Gateway Boulevard and Griffin Drive around 10 p.m. Thursday.

    According to an incident report from the Lee County Sheriff's Office, the victim met up with his friend whom he's known for a few years. The suspect and an unknown man got into the victim's car, and the suspect demanded the victim give up all his stuff. The victim refused and pulled out a gun.

    Both parties entered the store while fighting, and the victim tried to get the clerk to call 911, the report states. They went back outside, and the suspect allegedly punched the victim in the head. The victim said he responded by shooting at the suspect in self-defense.

    The suspect left with the other man in a dark blue Nissan Altima.

    Deputies haven't said if anybody was injured.

    Pet horse shot, killed in Florida after wandering into neighboring pasture
    LAKE COUNTY, Fla. (WESH)— A horse was shot and killed in Lake County after it wandered into a neighboring pasture, officials said.

    The horse's owner is outraged, but deputies said the man who shot the horse did it in self-defense.

    Investigators said the 6-year-old stallion got away from Natore Borst's property and wandered through an open fence to another property.

    According to that property's owner, the stallion was going after his mares.

    "He was like a family member, I've had him for so long," Borst said.

    Borst said she'd raised her horse, named Bolt, since he was a colt.

    "I would have wanted them to call me or my father so we could come get him. Then we wouldn't have to be burying him today," Borst said.

    Lake County officials said the property owner had the right to protect himself.

    According to sheriff's officials, the property owner who shot the horse first tried to remove the equine intruder.

    Officials said he was using feed to get the horse to come to him so he could try to rope him, when the horse reared up.

    Deputies said the stallion kicked the man in the shoulder, knocked him on the ground, and seemed to be getting ready to trample him.

    Borst, insists her horse is gentle. She shared pictures of children riding him to make that point.

    Officials said the horse had a history of getting out of his pasture, including at least a half dozen times in the last two years.

    Bolt's owner has even been cited but she doesn't think it warranted a death sentence..

    Investigators said as far as they are concerned, the case is closed.

    The man who was reportedly kicked by the horse did not need medical attention.

    Man fires back after being shot in his backyard, police in search of suspects

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A man says he fought back after someone shot him in his backyard in Nashville.

    Wednesday night, a woman flagged down some officers with the Juvenile Task Force out on patrol and told them someone shot had her husband.

    Police say the victim was in the backyard of his home on Crowe Drive when two men walked up to him and shot him in the stomach.

    The victim then pulled out a gun of his own and began firing but the gunmen got away. Police are still unsure if the victim hit either during the gunfire.

    The victim was taken to the hospital with serious injuries but he is expected to survive.

    According to police, someone has since dropped a man off at St. Thomas Hospital who matched the description of one of the gunmen. He had a gunshot wound but police are unsure if he was involved in this particular shooting.

    This is an ongoing investigation.

    Phoenix PD: Man holds intruder at gunpoint until police arrive
    David BakerMay 16, 2019
    PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - A Phoenix man prevented a situation from getting worse when he forced an intruder to lie down at gunpoint, according to court documents.

    [VIDEO: Intruder held at gunpoint until police arrived]

    It happened around 5:30 a.m. on Friday, May 10, near 67th Avenue near Thomas Road.

    Police said right after Aaron Ayala left his apartment, 38-year-old Francisco Antonio Armendariz "aggressively" knocked on his door with his girlfriend still inside the apartment. She looked through the peephole and saw Armendariz pacing back and forth on the third-floor landing.

    That's when the woman went back to her bedroom, locked the door and called her Ayala.

    "Someone was in the house. I remember hanging up and ran straight over there," Ayala told Arizona's Family.

    He then came back to the apartment and saw Armendariz opened the front door. He then drew his handgun and told Armendariz to lie down on the ground, court documents say.

    "He took a step where he was prepared to do something. But once he got (close to the gun)... he completely shut down," said Ayala.

    Officers arrived and took Armendariz into custody.

    Court documents say Armendariz admitted to getting into the apartment through an unlocked kitchen window.

    While at the jail, police said Armendariz punched a man who was sleeping and handcuffed in the intake waiting area. The victim possibly suffered a broken nose.

    Armendariz faces one count of first-degree trespassing and one count of aggravated assault.

    Bond was set at $10,000.

    Boise woman fires shot at man trying to break into her home

    Read more here: https://www.idahostatesman.com/news/...#storylink=cpy

    A Boise woman shot at a burglar she found on her porch, apparently trying to break into the front door of her home Thursday night.

    In a press release Friday, Boise police said the woman heard a noise and then noticed that her front door was ajar. So she grabbed her gun before going to investigate.

    She confronted the man on her front porch and fired the gun one time, police said. He fled the scene.

    Police found evidence that the burglar was using a pry bar to try to get the door open. They searched for the suspect with a dog and drone but did not find him.

    The incident happened at a house on Walnut Street and Warm Springs Avenue. Police were called to a report of a prowler at about 10:24 p.m.

    The woman was not able to provide a good description of the suspect. Residents in that area with home surveillance cameras that might have recorded anything notable last night are asked to contact police.

    If you have any information, call Ada County Dispatch’s nonemergency line: 208-377-6790 or Crime Stoppers at 208- 343-2677, www.343COPS.com, or leave a tip using the “P3 Tips” app for your mobile device.

    Most of the articles posted in this thread are of people who have a firearm when they need it and most likely have a different outcome because of their firearm. For every story of someone with a firearm whose gun makes a difference, I read dozens of stories where if a person had a firearm, things could have made the situation a lot better. Unfortunately a lot of people realize the worth of being able to protect yourself after something serious has happened, often with tragic results.

    This is a story of a person who found herself in a bad situation and got through it. Now she carries because she realizes the worth of the firearm.


    Summary below, full story at the link.

    Woman who was almost ABDUCTED says she lives in fear after her narrow escape - as she reveals she has since learned how to use a GUN, and carries a siren and pepper spray with her

    • Lindsey Alexandra, from Michigan, was approached by a man in a car while she was out walking in August 2017
    • The mother-of-two said the man drove beside her and blocked her path before grabbing her elbow and trying to pull her into the car
    • Luckily, the 38-year-old managed to escape from her attacker, however, she admits she still thinks about the incident 'a hundred times a day'
    • In the aftermath of the incident, Lindsey took self-defense classes, learned how to use a pistol and always carries pepper spray and a siren in her bag
    • Lindsey is now on a mission to raise awareness about safety, as she said: 'It is up to each of us to have the knowledge and awareness to protect ourselves'
    • 'I hope my story will encourage others to take the steps needed as well for prevention,' she added
