A resident of Chinatown in Chicago, Ill., used his concealed-carry pistol in self-defense when an intruder allegedly attacked him as he returned home on Monday, Oct. 3, 2022.

Sometime around 6 p.m. that afternoon, the resident was just getting home when he noticed that his garage door was open, and there was a bicycle left standing against the wall. When the resident went to investigate the garage, a 30-year-old man came running out and charged at the resident. In response the the sudden ambush, the resident took a step backwards, drew his concealed pistol and fired a single round into the intruder.

It took a beating and a robbery in which he lost $26,000 to convince Cleveland, Ohio, homeowner Edward Morak to get a gun for protection. It came in handy when three men tried to smash open the 65-year-old Morak’s front door with a shovel. Morak went upstairs to get his gun and returning, opened fire. A wounded suspect was charged with attempted aggravated burglary, and a police prosecutor said that no charges would be filed against Morak. (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio)
