A 28-year-old Pennsylvania woman was forced to defend herself after being repeatedly assaulted by her boyfriend early one September morning. The incident began around 2 a.m. when the 24-year-old boyfriend refused to leave the woman’s residence, culminating in a physical altercation. For the next three hours, the woman was repeatedly assaulted and held against her will, with threats made against her life. When the man began to search the residence for the woman's legally possessed firearm, she quickly retrieved it before he could find it. When he attempted to attack her again, the woman shot him several times. She then fled her residence and reported the incident to authorities around 5:15 a.m. Police arrived and found the boyfriend dead at the scene. (triblive.com, Greensburg, Pa., 9/26/2020)

Three armed burglars forced their way into a home in Monroe, La., one Sunday night, demanding money from the male resident. The homeowner refused to cooperate and yelled for the female resident, which prompted one of the intruders to strike the man on the head with his handgun several times. The woman woke up to the noise and grabbed a gun stored under her mattress. Upon investigating, she found the male resident struggling with two of the armed burglars. When one of the armed intruders pointed his gun at her, she fired several shots, hitting one of the thugs. The three burglars then fled the home through the front door and jumped into a car parked outside the home. A short while later, police were notified of a shooting victim at the local hospital. Upon investigation, they discovered the 19-year-old gunshot victim fit the description of one in the trio of would-be burglars. He soon confessed to being a part of the armed robbery attempt and being shot by the woman. He was arrested and charged with one count of aggravated burglary. A second suspect was arrested later and charged with aggravated burglary and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. (thenewsstar.com, Monroe, La., 10/19/2020)
