When a Clear Brook, Va., resident saw an intruder’s hands reaching through his bedroom window, he fired his 12-ga. shotgun, killing the interloper. Deputies found the suspect dead in the yard after they responded to a 9-1-1 call when the homeowner reported the shooting. (The Winchester Star, Winchester, VA, 3/5/18)

One Friday morning, an ex-convict attempted to pry open the front door of a home using a crowbar and hammer. The 70-year-old homeowner and his wife awoke to the noise, upon which the homeowner retrieved his handgun and went to investigate the commotion. He confronted the intruder, who surrendered, while the homeowner’s wife called police. The husband held the man at gunpoint until authorities arrived and arrested him.
