On Nov. 1, 2023, two men reportedly entered a liquor store in Chicago, Ill, around 10:30 p.m., pointed guns at the cashier and demanded money from the register. It seems the cashier did not comply quickly enough for the assailants because a struggle ensued and one of them struck him on the head with a glass bottle, seriously injuring him. Nonetheless, the cashier was able to pull out a gun and fire at his attackers, who then fled. Police were still seeking the suspects at the time of the reporting.

Around 5 a.m. on Dec. 2, 2023, three men allegedly broke into a home in Granada Hills, Calif. One of them pointed a gun at the homeowner inside, who responded by firing his own gun at them, killing one and likely injuring at least one other (as indicated by a blood trail), thus defending himself, his grandmother and his child, who were in the home at the time of the intrusion. The two suspects who fled left without getting back into the black BMW sedan they’d arrived in. (foxla.com, Los Angeles, Calif., 12/2/24)

Two men wearing hooded sweatshirts, masks and surgical gloves entered a Philadelphia, Pa., pizza shop around 8:30 p.m. on Nov. 4, 2023. One of the men fired a handgun into the ceiling and then began to move to where an employee was standing behind the counter. The employee was a concealed carrier, however, and responded by firing at the assailant, killing him; the other suspect fled. No other injuries were reported.
