Oklahoma: Intruder shot and killed : "The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says one of two men who allegedly broke into an Okmulgee home was shot and killed by someone inside the home. It happened late Sunday night. Investigators say the two men, who have not been identified, came through the front door and that shots were exchanged between them and 26-year-old Brian Currin, who was inside. One of the suspects was struck several times by the gunfire and died at the scene. The second suspect ran from the home and has not been arrested."

Ohio: Man, 83, discusses shooting at home: "Walter Swita used a German Luger 9 mm pistol he brought home from World War II to shoot an intruder he suspects robbed him a few weeks ago. The intruder, Benjamin Brooks, 44, of East Philadelphia Avenue, died Sunday at St. Elizabeth Health Center. Swita shot him in the head and chest around 10:30 p.m. Friday. Brooks, whose record included robbery and breaking and entering, lived around the corner from Swita. 'Watch out for the blood on the rug,' Swita, 83, said as he welcomed a reporter into the living room of his South Avenue home Monday. 'That's his blood. I hit my head on the TV stand when we fell.'"
