Police responded to a reported burglary report in which thieves, who had used bolt cutters to gain access through the homeowner’s gate, stole a number of items, including a firearm. Later that evening around 11 p.m., the brazen culprits returned to the same house. When the armed female resident saw the two men prowling in her yard, she bravely confronted them, but they advanced toward her. Fearing for her life, she fired two shots at the intruders, hitting one of them. Both suspects fled, but a police K-9 tracked down the wounded one. Next to him they discovered the woman’s firearm that had been stolen earlier, with extra magazines and ammunition found in his pockets. After recovering in the hospital from the gunshot wound and dog bite, he was booked into jail. The other perpetrator remained at large. (YakTriNews.com, Sunnyside, Wash., 08/16/19)

A woman and her friend were chatting in her home when her estranged husband, who had a protective order against him for domestic violence, showed up in a bout of rage. After forcing his way into the house, he attacked the woman’s 60-year-old friend with a knife. As they struggled, the woman retrieved a handgun and fired at her ex-husband, fatally wounding him. Deemed to have acted in the defense of herself and her friend, the brave homeowner was not arrested. In a statement to the press she said, “If it’s your life or theirs, you have to do what you have to do.” (Komonews.com, McCleary, Wash., 11/27/19)
