    Has there been a higher rate of defensive gun uses, or are you getting better at finding the stories?

    Not sure, I’ve been spending a bit more time digging. I’m sure there have been many I’ve missed over the months and am probably still missing some.

    Tallahassee man found not guilty of second degree murder

    http://www.tallahassee.com/story/new...der/872054001/
    A Tallahassee man was found not guilty of second degree murder in a 2015 shooting after jurors agreed it was in self-defense.

    Jurors deliberated for just two hours Wednesday before reaching a verdict in the case against 30-year-old Michael Mason.

    Mason was charged with the 2015 shooting of David Queen during an argument at a north Tallahassee apartment complex.

    Mason’s attorneys contended he and Queen were in an argument moments before the shooting in which Mason believed he was going to be robbed.

    At the time, Mason called 911 dispatchers to report the shooting, telling them over the phone that Queen had "charged him."

    Attorney Nate Prince, who defended Mason, said the state’s only witness gave inconsistent statements, fled the scene and was uncooperative with investigators and prosecutors in participating in the trial.

    “There was no evidence inconsistent with my client’s statements he was trying to rob him,” Prince said.

    State Attorney Jack Campbell said the crux of a self-defense claim rests on whether a person feels threatened and there is no duty to retreat.

    The verdict is heartbreaking for the victim’s family, Campbell said.

    “I respect the jury’s verdict who thought it was clearly a case of Stand Your Ground self-defense,” Campbell said. “I don’t think an argument should end in anybody being dead.”

    Uber driver shoots passenger in self-defense, deputies say

    http://www.fox13news.com/news/local-...e-deputies-say
    Sarasota County deputies he called 911 after shooting the suspect Geoffrey Ruscher. Deputies said the driver picked up Ruscher and his girlfriend who eventually began arguing. The driver said he heard a slap, but wasn't sure who the aggressor was, according an arrest affidavit.

    Ruscher became belligerent prompting the driver to ask him to exit the vehicle multiple times in the 4100 block of Lockwood Ridge Road. Eventually, Ruscher got out, according to the media release, and began walking northbound. The driver asked Ruscher's girlfriend if she still wanted to be driven home, but then Ruscher returned. He began threatening the driver and walking closer to him in “an aggressive manner.” The driver pulled out his firearm and tried to push Ruscher away from him, but was punched in the shoulder. He then pointed his gun at Ruscher and warned him to distance himself, but Ruscher refused and said, “I will kill you,” according to the deputies.

    The victim shot one round into Ruscher’s leg, deputies said. Witnesses said Ruscher was the aggressor and detectives said the victim was indeed in fear of his life. The victim lawfully carries his firearm, deputies said, and will not face any charges, although, it is not clear what may have prompted the entire incident.

    Ruscher was cleared from the hospital and transported to Sarasota County Jail. He has been charged with simple assault and battery.

    Fatal shooting in Oshkosh was apparently in self-defense


    http://fox11online.com/news/local/fa...n-self-defense
    OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- The shooting death of a man in Oshkosh on Nov. 5 was apparently self-defense by a homeowner during a robbery attempt -- and the man who allegedly drove the victim to the home for the robbery has been charged with felony murder.
    Cashmiere Hill was shot and killed while breaking into a home at 815 Waugoo Street, according to the criminal complaint for Troy Summers, the man now charged.

    Nick Davis said someone broke into his residence and demanded money – possibly because he made a social media post about winning at the casino.
    According to the criminal complaint:

    While lying down he said he heard glass breaking in the kitchen and when he went to go investigate he observed a black male trying to get into his house and at one point Nick said that the male had yelled over something to him in the form of, “give me your (expletive) money,” and fired a round at Nick, striking him in the wrist. Nick said at this point he fired back in self-defense, shooting off several rounds, the number that he thought was approximately eight rounds, and that he must have hit the guy cause he had fallen back into the stairwell and ultimately towards the door. Once the male had fallen back Nick said that he was able to call 911 as well as yell to neighbors after going outside yelling for help.

    Davis has not been charged, and no charges have been requested at this point, according to the Winnebago County District Attorney’s office.
    Summers told police he called Davis to make sure he was home, then drove Hill to a spot about two blocks from Davis’ home.

    “When I dropped the dude who died off so that he could rob Nicky Davis he asked me if I was gonna be around and I said yes that I would be around to pick him up. I then drove over by Otter Av. And I then heard multiple gunshots in a row and it sounded like a small caliber gun and the shots got loud. The shots sounded like they were coming from the area of Nick Davis' house. I then left…,” the complaint quotes Summers as saying.

    Summers is also charged with armed robbery and armed burglary. Summers appeared in court Wednesday, where a $500,000 cash bond was set. He returns to court for a status conference Monday, with a preliminary hearing set for Wednesday, according to court records.

    Stephon Harris, 21, also faces armed robbery and burglary charges. Harris and Hill allegedly went to Davis’ home before the incident when shots were fired, and then Hill went back, according to the complaint. He is being held on a $100,000 cash bond, and also has a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
