From Rochester, New York;

Police were initially called to the area for the reports of a person shot.

Once they got on scene, officers discovered that a group of four teens attempted to rob a 40-year-old Rochester man of his vehicle and other things of his. Police say one of these men had a weapon on him and threatened the victim.

The victim, who owns a legally registered handgun, shot the armed suspect in the upper body at least once.

The suspect was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital and is in stable but serious condition.

Police say all of the suspects who tried to rob the victim are in custody. Jayelon Johnson and Summeran Patterson – both 19 – and an unnamed 14-year-old were charged with first-degree attempted robbery and fourth-degree attempted grand larceny.

The man who the group attempted to rob was unharmed during the whole incident.

From South Beloit, Illinois;

South Beloit Police say around 2 a.m a female friend of a father and his two teenagers stopped by their house. The female said she had another female friend in her car, who the father said was allowed inside.

Authorities say when the female left the house, three masked men entered the house, one armed with a knife.

As the father was being restrained, he managed to break free and start fighting with the suspects. The father’s two teenagers also started fighting the suspects at this time.

The father was able to grab the knife of one of the suspects and stab them with it. At this time, the teenagers left the house.

The two women and the three masked men all left the house in a dark colored vehicle.

    Doesn’t get much better than that- three perforated bad guys, and no collateral damage to the victim or witnesses.

    14 years old is kinda old to be learning how to make a living by robbing people. I wonder if he started at an earlier age and this incident just didn’t turn out the way he figured it would. I mean you have to feed and take care of your family whom possibly may be fatherless. /Sarc

    Jayelon? Summeran? I wonder, is Summeran’s middle name Fall?
    Those boys should take up another vocation, like stealing packages from unoccupied vehicles, or perhaps stealing mail from mailboxes in rural areas, where the homes are out of pistol range of the mail box.

    South Beloit??? Nothing in Beloit has even been very interesting and now they’re having crime sprees? It’s almost as dull as Skokie on a rainy day.
