Paul sends us some more good news about a woman in Kansas who noticed a car backing into her driveway yesterday afternoon and then saw a man with Latex gloves at her backdoor preparing to kick the door in. So she fired her gun through the door;
… at least one of the men fired back into her house. The woman was not hurt.
The men then drove away.
Three minutes later, police received a 911 call from a cellphone. The caller said, “My brother’s been shot,” but didn’t provide a location.
About 12:20 p.m., a man shot in the chest showed up at Research Medical Center with two other men. Police arrested the three and questioned them about the attempted burglary and shooting.
Along the same lines, UpNorth sends us the news from Fresno, that armed robbers in California can’t depend on people to be unarmed in their homes in the great socialist republic of California;
The suspects, 34-year-old Aaron Baeza and 30-year-old Christopher Rupe, tied up the homeowner and his girlfriend and demanded money. They later freed the man to allow him to look for the cash.
The homeowner then stabbed and killed Baeza with his samurai sword.
Rupe escaped, remains at large, and is considered armed and dangerous. Investigators say he may be traveling with an unidentified Caucasian woman in a dark green Ford F-150 pickup, with a California license plate of 6T04402.
Stu sends more good news from Arkansas;
The Russellville Police Department (RPD) says just after four o’clock officers were called to the 1300 block of North Cleveland about a shooting.
Police say the suspect was armed when he went into the home and was met by the homeowner who was also armed to defend his property.
The injured suspect was first taken to Saint Mary’s Regional Medical Center before being airlifted to a hospital in Little Rock.
The update to the story says that the poor misguided youth has passed on as a result of his wounds and Russellville is marginally safer tonight.
