An alleged intruder was shot and killed by an armed resident after forcing his way into a Baton Rouge, La., house and tackling the man on the night of April 24, 2023.

At 10 p.m., the resident responded to a 37-year-old man who was banging on the door. The resident opened the door, at which point, the intruder charged the resident and tackled him. Despite the hit, the armed resident was able to fire multiple shots at his attacker, stopping the assault and killing him in the process.

Police have said the shooting is justified. (WBRZ 2, Baton Rouge, La., 4/24/2023)

When a neighbor called to report intruders in the garage of her Indianapolis, Ind., home, Gladys O’Brien set off the burglar alarm, found her pistol and investigated. Accompanied by the neighbor, O’Brien surprised two men inside the garage and held one at bay until police arrived; the other intruder fled. (The Palladium-Item, Indianapolis, Ind.)
