Residents of Alaska are accustomed to being prepared to defend themselves from the many potential four-legged encounters such as bears, but a 55-year-old woman was forced to shoot a two-legged trespasser with ill intent. When an axe-wielding man, who was also intoxicated, broke in and threatened to kill her, the woman fired at him with a handgun. The perpetrator was taken to the hospital for treatment of his injuries. The homeowner will not face charges. (Kiro7.com,Wasilla, Alaska, 06/05/21)

An armed would-be robber attempted to break into a Brooklyn apartment while the residents were home. A 36-year-old male resident attempted to keep the door closed as the intruder struggled to gain entry. The assailant was firing shots through the door. One bullet hit the man in the stomach, and his 29-year-old wife was shot in the arm. The injured woman was able to retrieve her husband’s firearm and shoot the thug in the head. The couple’s child was in the apartment at the time, but was unhurt. The parents were taken to the hospital, and the invader was pronounced dead at the scene.(Explica.co, Williamsburg, N.Y., 06/04/21)
