Colorado: Three men arrested after home robbery: "Fort Collins police took three 18-year-old men into custody after a home robbery shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday in the 1200 block of Remington Street. A fourth suspect is in Poudre Valley Hospital recovering from gunshot wounds. ... According to the victims, a man entered their home through an unlocked front door, head covered in a stocking mask, carrying a shotgun and demanded cash or drugs. The suspect grabbed a male and threatened a female in trying to force entry into an adjoining apartment. An apartment resident shot the suspect after he appeared to threaten him. The intruders then picked up the injured man and fled in a car."

Pennsylvania: Shooting self-defense, says DA: "The Bucks County District Attorney's Office has dropped attempted murder charges against two men in connection with the fatal shooting of 19-year-old William Collins III of Bensalem. ... The June 5 shooting at Route 1 and Old Lincoln Highway in Bensalem was justified, First Assistant District Attorney David Zellis said Wednesday, after attempted murder charges were dropped against Jason Anderson and Samuel Balogun, both 26-year-old Bensalem men. Anderson and Balogun fired a total of six shots, Zellis said. A shot from Balogun's 9 mm handgun struck Collins after he had smashed the windows of a car carrying Anderson, Balogun and two other people with a baseball bat, said the prosecutor."

Florida: Teen intruder shot and killed: "A homeowner shot and killed a young intruder who was found in a Gulf Breeze residence about 3 a.m. Wednesday. The homeowner received a gunshot wound to the hand in the altercation that took place about 3 a.m. in the 3400 block of Tibet Drive, according to the Santa Rosa County Sheriff?s Office. ... 'At this point no charges have been filed, no arrests have been made. It's a matter that's still under investigation,' said Assistant State Attorney Harmon Massey. Massey said it's possible further investigation may be required, but that a decision on whether charges will be filed would come quickly."
