From Gary, Indiana;

One man is dead and another is on the run after a customer at an auto dealership shot and killed a robbery suspect in self-defense, police said.

The customer and an employee were outside of Ocampo Auto Sales, a used car lot at 401 W. Ridge Road, when two men approached them, according to Gary police.

Officers and EMS were called out at about 2 p.m. to investigate.

A second robbery suspect fled the scene, police said. Police did not immediately have a description or other information about the second suspect.

The Lake County coroner’s office identified the gunshot victim — and robbery suspect — as Markis D. Square, 30, of Gary.

From Evansville, Indiana;

At a news conference Thursday, Evansville Police said 48-year-old Michael Anthony Foster of Evansville was shot by an officer.

EPD said Foster had committed a violent rape at an apartment on Spring Valley Road near Green River Road.

EPD said Foster left but threatened victim he was coming back. When Foster came back, he was confronted by an officer.

Police said the officer asked him to drop his weapon, but instead Foster pointed it at the officer. The EPD officer then shot Foster several times.

Foster is being treated at a local hospital. EPD is not identifying the officer.

During their investigation, police said they discovered Foster was holding a replica gun, not a real one.

Michael Antony Foster is a convicted sex offender, according to EPD. Foster was convicted of child molesting in 1997.

From San Antonio Texas;

Police were called around 9:37 p.m. to a home on the 7000 block of Valley Trails for reports of a shooting. Officers found a man with a gunshot wound to his chest on the living room floor.

The man allegedly got in a fight with a relative before he was shot. According to police, the relative locked herself in a bedroom, which the man kicked open and started punching her.

The suspect then grabbed her handgun and found the man chocking his family member. The suspect was shot once and pronounced the man dead at the scene by EMS.

    Markis D. Square

      Markis D. Square (DRT), forever 30 years old due to the Taxpayer Savings round, 29×3= 87.

      Bonus (from another story):

      Michael Anthony Foster (WRT and DAM* for having a replica peashooter) 36×3= 108.

    Wow. San Antonio must be subject to invading illiterates.

    Sister Mary Grace gives the writer of the San Antonio slop a hard smack on the head with her 12-inch ruler and drops The Chicago Manual Of Style, full size print version, on the writer’s paws.
