Idaho: Deadly shooting may have been justified: "The shooting death of a Clark Fork man on Tuesday night appears to be a case of self-defense, Bonner County Sheriff's officials said on Wednesday. The identity of the shooting victim and the woman who pulled the trigger were not released on Wednesday. 'She's claiming she was physically attacked and had to defend herself,' Sheriff's Det. John Valdez said, declining to elaborate. ... Valdez said the 34-year-old woman was an acquaintance and former co-worker of the man. 'She was giving him a ride home, ostensibly because he had a broken down vehicle,' said Valdez. The man died of a single gunshot wound to his torso."

Nevada: Man shoots alleged home invaders: "A Henderson man shot and wounded two brothers who allegedly broke into his home near College Drive and East Horizon Drive on Monday night, Henderson Police said. ... The preliminary investigation indicates that the homeowner was acting in self-defense, so he has not been charged in connection with the shooting, Rasmussen said. Rasmussen said the Boldens and possibly one other suspect broke into the home through a back door. The homeowner heard the men inside the home and fired in their direction, striking the brothers, Rasmussen said."
