Thursday morning feel good stories

From Houston, Texas;

Police are investigating a deadly scene in north Houston where an apartment dweller defending his property shot and killed a robber in a home invasion.

The incident happened around 2:00 p.m. Tuesday at The Palms on Rolling Creek Apartments on Rolling Creek Drive near Cypress Creek Parkway, near the North Freeway.

When a group of suspects attempted to rob a man and woman, the man shot back, and an exchange of gunfire followed.

The man went to the hospital by transport after being shot. His wife was also admitted for shortness of breath.

Authorities believe another suspect ran over the slain victim.

By “slain victim” I think they mean “dead perp”. Another article says that the good guy was shot in the chest and the dead perp was shot in the noggin.

From Louisville, Kentucky;

Louisville Metro police say the robbery happened around 7:10 a.m. Sept. 16. A man armed with a gun went into Wide Open Motorsports at 8633 Preston Highway, pointed it at an employee and demanded tools from the business.

After getting the tools, the suspect, Chad Douglas Autry, 38, of Louisville, demanded the employee get into his vehicle. During a scuffle, the victim managed to get a gun and fire three shots at Autry, hitting him once. When the wounded Autry fell to the ground, the victim managed to get Autry’s gun and hold him at gunpoint until police arrived.

Last week we talked about the Concealed Weapon Permit holder who fired up a thief in Detroit, Michigan. Here’s the video of that encounter (bonus ramblings of an outraged mother of the criminal);

From Kalamazoo, Michigan;

Police said a soon-to-be customer was on his way inside the store when he noticed a man pointing a gun at the clerk.

The witness went back to his vehicle and called 911. Shortly after, officers received an emergency call from the clerk of the party store.

Police said a middle-aged white man with a handgun came into the store and demanded money from the clerk. As the clerk emptied the register, he took advantage of a chance to disarm the suspect.

The clerk reached for the gun and took it out of the suspect’s hands. The suspect grabbed as much money as he could before fleeing the scene.

Police said the suspect was seen leaving the area on foot, westbound on West Michigan Avenue. A perimeter was set up and a K9 track was attempted.

Due to heavy rain and foot traffic, the track was called off and the suspect was not found.

From Jacksonville, Florida;

Sgt. Steve Rudlaff said police and the resident were called about 11:42 a.m. by the alarm company about a break-in at the home, which is between Lake Shore Boulevard and Lane Avenue.

The resident made it to the house before police arrived, went inside and confronted two men, shooting one of them, Rudlaff said.

The man who was shot died inside a silver four-door car in the home’s carport. It’s unclear if the burglar was shot inside the home and made it to the car before he died, or if he was shot in the car, police said.

The second intruder ran from the home, and officers and the JSO helicopter were called in to search for him, but he has not been found yet.

    Yep. Finally submitted my CCW paperwork a week ago today. Should be about two more weeks before I get it. Too many….WAAAAYYYY too many folks getting caught short because they weren’t ready for “Danny didn’t doo nuffin” and his brother “Harry He’s a good boy” to show up at the door or on the street.

    Motown Mama, yo’ boy’s in the hospital because he’s a criminal who got shot while committing a crime. Best you can do is slap him silly and boot his butt out the door when/if he comes home.

    I’m impressed with the quick and proper reaction of the Detroit target. He hit the bad guy’s hand so hard, knocked the dope down.

    Made my day.

    The Jacksonville shooting has a problem
    I applaud a dead burglar, but the article says “ it is unclear if the burglar was shot while in the car”
    Florida law is clear that you cannot shoot at a fleeing criminal
    If he was driving away, that is a bad shoot and the homeowner could be charged with manslaughter
