From Greenville County, South Carolina;

The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office said a resident arrived home Friday morning and found someone inside their home on Easterlin Way.

Deputies say the resident fired at least one round before going outside to call law enforcement.

Deputies responded to a reported burglary at the home around 8:10 a.m. Friday.

Officers found the subject dead in a closet.

The investigation is underway.

From St Louis, Missouri;

Five people were inside that home at the time, and one of them, a man, 67, was struck by gunfire in the back. A man, 29, inside the home then grabbed his own gun and shot the suspect in the leg, police said.

The robber fled, but continued to fire shots. That’s when the off-duty officer saw him, pulled out his gun and shot at the fleeing vehicle, police said.

The robber returned fire at the officer, but the officer was not struck, police said.

Police then arrested the injured suspect on Harlan Avenue, off North Broadway in the Baden neighborhood.

St. Louis police have since determined the suspect was not struck by the officer’s gunfire, but by the victim’s gunfire.

From South Bend, Indiana;

South Bend police responded to a shooting on the city’s west side late Thursday morning

Initially, one man was reported injured. Later, as the investigation unfolded, police reportedly discovered that the shooting happened during an attempted robbery, and when the victim attempted to defend himself, he was shot.

But the victim also returned fire, according to a release issued by the South Bend Police Department Thursday night.

There were two suspects in the attempted robbery, and it was not immediately clear whether either of the suspects was shot.

But police later responded to a possible gunshot victim in a Niles hospital and concluded the person hospitalized there was one of the suspects in the attempted robbery.

Both the victim and the suspect reportedly were treated for injuries.

From Covington, Georgia;

According to a Newton County Sheriff’s Office incident report, law enforcement responded to the home on Rosemoore Drive just past midnight April 18 on a report of the robbery attempt. An NCSO spokesperson said the homeowner had just arrived home when he was approached by an unknown male suspect brandishing a handgun who demanded his property.

When the suspect raised his gun, the homeowner drew his own weapon and fired a shot. The would-be robber fled the scene and the homeowner observed a vehicle drive by at a high rate of speed. After hearing what he thought was a gunshot, the homeowner fired a shot at the vehicle.
