No one else was harmed during the incident. At the time of this report, no charges had been filed. (WJHL.com, Scott County, Va., 06/17/20)

Barely awake, the woman was rising to investigate, when the intruder barged into her room, grabbed her and threw her onto the bed. Her instincts took over, and she was able to grab her handgun and shoot the attacker. The intruder was dead when police arrived. (KSLA.com, Shreveport, La., 06/06/20)
