Arkansas: Worker Shoots Burglary Suspect During Break-In: "A worker at a Little Rock motorcycle dealership shot a burglary suspect early Tuesday morning. Around 5:00 a.m., police responded to a burglar alarm at BMW Motorcycles of Little Rock on Jones Street. An employee, Julius Ceasaer, told officers that he was sleeping in the business when he heard a loud noise. He then saw a dark colored Dodge pick up backing into the business. Ceasaer said that he grabbed his shotgun, approached the front door and saw a man looking around at some of the motorcycles that were on display. When the suspect, 43-year-old Haywood Patterson, saw Ceasaer, he ran out of the business. Two other suspects inside the pick up then drove away. Ceasaer saw Patterson crouching down outside. Ceasaer told police he feared Patterson may have had a weapon, so he fired shots at him. Patterson was wounded in the upper body and face. He attempted to flee the area, but was caught shortly after. He was transported to UAMS where his injuries are life threatening. No charges have been filed at this time and detectives are working to identify the other two suspects in the truck"

Louisiana: Attempted robbery leads to deadly shooting: "Police say a deadly shooting on Alliquippa Street in Baton Rouge was apparently the result of an attempted robbery gone bad. They say around 2:00 Wednesday morning two men rushed into a home attempting to rob the people inside. Police say an 18-year-old inside the home grabbed his gun and started shooting, but so did a 38-year-old robber. The robber died at the scene, while the 18-year-old remains hospitalized fighting for his life."

Louisiana: Business owner foils robbery try: "A business owner who fought back foiled a robbery try early today and may have wounded one of the men who tried to rob him, Shreveport police say. At around 12:15 a.m., Shreveport police patrol officers were sent to Mitchell’s Transmission in the 3100 block of Morningside Drive after getting reports of an attempted robbery there. Officers learned that three men wearing ski masks, one armed with a sawed-off shotgun, had tried to rob the owner as he closed the business. The business owner said he pulled out his handgun and fired two shots at the robbers, who ran off. The business owner was not injured. About 10 minutes later, officers got a call from Willis-Knighton Medical center on Greenwood Road where a man had shown up at the emergency room with a gunshot wound. At the hospital, officers contacted one Derrick Glover, 20, who had a gunshot wound to his abdomen. Glover told officers he had been shot by an unknown man somewhere on Kent Street. Kent intersects with Morningside in the Caddo Heights neighborhood in central Shreveport. Detectives are trying to determine whether the robbery try and the shooting are related."

Police say a clerk fired shots at two black males who entered the store with handguns and took some merchandise. One of the men was shot in the hip, Goodin said. He is being treated at LSU Hospital in Shreveport with non-life threatening injuries. The other is being questioned by detectives."
