A woman who was being assaulted and feared for her life shot her attacker in the leg, according to reports. Police said the incident started inside the woman’s apartment, but she subsequently fled to a parking lot of a nearby grocery store before she fired on him. The man was taken to a hospital in stable condition; the victim sustained bruising from the fight. (foxatlanta.com; Atlanta, Ga., 7/22/22)

A 29-year-old man who was acting in an “erratic and paranoid” manner was shot early one morning after he broke into a home, according to reports. The intruder had forced his way into a home as a resident answered the door. The would-be burglar reportedly entered the home behaving erratically, and frightening the homeowner as he ran outside to call for help. While the victim was trying to gain the attention of neighbors, the assailant kicked the door of another home in an apparent attempt to break in. As the initial victim sought help from a neighbor, the miscreant approached the home “acting in a suspicious manner” before he ran up to the door and followed the victim and neighbor inside. It was then that the intruder was shot, suffering non-fatal wounds. Authorities said alcohol and/or narcotics appear to have played a factor in the incident. The man was charged with two counts of burglary to an occupied dwelling. (wfla.com; Pinellas County, Fla., 7/13/22)
