A mother whose ex-boyfriend had previously broken into her home began making threatening calls to her. After receiving a menacing message, she feared he would break in again and kill her. She alerted police, and hid in her bedroom with her small son. The man ultimately broke into her house, and made his way into the bedroom, where he found the woman crouched in the corner, protecting her son. As he approached, the woman, who had armed herself, fired at him, hitting him in the groin. The injured man attempted to flee, but he had only made it as far as the driveway when officials found him. The man was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The woman and her child were uninjured. (Kdrv.com, Grants Pass, Ore., 03/11/19)

A woman asleep in her home was awakened by a noise coming from the front of the house. Before investigating, she armed herself with a gun. She discovered her front door wide open and a man standing on her porch. She shot at the would-be intruder, missing, but it was enough to scare him off. Police, who found evidence that he was using a pry bar to gain entry, searched for the suspect with a dog and a drone, but were unable to locate him. (IdahoStatesman.com, Boise, Idaho, 05/17/19)
