WV: Mason County man fatally shoots his son: “State Police say a Mason County man is claiming self defense after fatally shooting his son during a dispute in his New Haven home. … Charles Greenlee had gone to the Seventh Street home of his father and stepmother earlier Friday evening and the three of them got into an argument, troopers said. State Police spokesman Michael Baylous said Charles Greenlee assaulted his father and then began assaulting his stepmother, whose name has not been released. At that time, Lyman Greenlee retrieved a small- to medium-sized handgun and ordered his son to stop, Baylous said. Troopers said Lyman Greenlee then fired one shot, which struck his son.”

Missouri: Armed struggle ends with man shot in Northland: "A man was shot in Kansas City, North, shortly after 10 p.m. Saturday after he had come, armed with a handgun, to the home of another man. Police said the two had an ongoing disagreement and that the man they identified as a suspect went into the other man's home in the 1000 block of Northwest 63rd Street brandishing a handgun. The two struggled over the intruder's gun, and the resident pulled out his own gun and shot the other man"

SC: Again, a pizza, a robbery, a gunshot: "A Papa John’s pizza delivery man shot and wounded a 17-year-old who called in a pizza order and then robbed him at a vacant house with a fake handgun, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said. The incident occurred July 5, but deputies delayed announcing it until Monday — a day after the teen was charged with robbery, and eight days after the shooting. It was the second time in recent months that a pizza delivery man in Lexington County has shot someone trying to rob him. The other incident was March 7, when a Pizza Hut delivery man shot and killed a 17-year-old assailant who was beating him. Deputies have arrested three other teens in that Irmo-area incident. But neither pizza delivery man is facing charges, since authorities have ruled both shootings were in self-defense. The two delivery men carried concealed-weapon permits, deputies said. In the most recent shooting, Sheriff James Metts is withholding the name of the pizza delivery man. He said Monday through a spokesman that deputies feared for the man’s safety — but would not give details of any threats. The suspect, Raymond Antonio Metze, 17, of 212 Crestridge Drive, Lexington, was booked Sunday at the Lexington County Detention Center on charges of armed robbery and possessing a weapon during the commission of a violent crime. He is in jail under $100,000 bond."

TN: Injunction to stop “guns in bars” law denied: “Davidson County Chancellor Claudia Bonnyman rejected a request by Nashville restaurateur Randy Rayburn and others to issue an injunction that would prevent legislation from going into effect at midnight that would allow carry-permit holders to take handguns into restaurants and bars. Bonnyman said the case should move forward based on its merits, but said the plaintiffs were not able to effectively argue that an injunction was needed to prevent ‘irreparable harm.’ She cited the law’s opt-out provision that allows restaurant and bar owners to post sign barring weapons.”
