Neighbors called a homeowner in Shelby County, Tenn., to inform him that several men were milling around his vehicles. The homeowner went outside to investigate and saw two men in his driveway and two other men in a white sedan parked in the middle of his street. The unknown men saw him and took off running, but one of the men also reportedly turned and shot at the homeowner, striking him in the ankle. The armed citizen returned fire and the assailant and other suspects fled. One of the suspects was later arrested after knocking on doors in the neighborhood and yelling into his phone “Y’all left me; come pick me up!” (wreg.com, Memphis, Tenn., 2/10/23)

When a 77-year-old homeowner in Ann Arbor, Mich., heard what sounded like someone opening his screen door around dinnertime on May 24, he found someone already in his kitchen. The stranger, a tall man who looked to be in his 20s, had apparently forced his way through a window over the sink. The homeowner fired one shot at the intruder, who fled through the same window. “He went out headfirst,” the armed citizen told reporters. “He was younger than me, no doubt stronger than me. I’m 77 years old and he was in my house and I defended myself.” Police were still investigating the matter at the time of reporting. (wxyz.com, Detroit, Mich., 5/25/23)
