A Virginia homeowner was leaving her home around midnight on a Thursday when she saw a masked man coming toward her from the side of her home. Fearing for her life, the woman, a concealed-carry holder, drew her firearm and fired at the man. When police arrived, they found the man collapsed near the front door, with a loaded handgun in his possession. He was taken to a hospital, where he later died from his wounds. The woman was unharmed, and will not face charges, as the shooting was deemed a justifiable act of self-defense. (theblaze.com, Woodbridge, Va., 07/23/21)
