TN: Man dies in family fight: "A family argument that apparently simmered most of the day ended with one man dead Thursday night. Monroe County Sheriff's Detective Mike Morgan said Steve Wilson, 47, Old Tellico Highway, Madisonville, shot and killed Doyle Graham, 35, when Graham came to Wilson's house just before 10:30 p.m. to continue the argument. 'We're not really sure what got all this started,' Morgan said, 'but according to witnesses and Wilson's statement, Graham came to the house with a .38 handgun and was going to shoot Wilson, but the gun malfunctioned and wouldn't fire.' Wilson told Morgan that Graham didn't lower his gun, so Wilson, fearing for his life, returned fire with a .22 pistol, striking Graham in the chest and killing him. 'Everybody in the house was related,' Morgan said. 'The two men were brothers-in-law. I guess you could say it was a family fight gone horribly wrong.'"

GA: Home invaders pick the wrong guy: "An Atlanta teen has been arrested in Thursday morning's botched home invasion robbery in which another suspect was killed by an off-duty DeKalb County police officer. Sidney F. Clark, 18, was charged Thursday night with armed robbery, DeKalb police spokesman Herschel Grangent said. Police said four men forced open the front door of the officer's apartment in the Lake Louise complex on Evans Road in the Northlake area shortly before 2 a.m. Thursday. The officer and his young son were asleep, and when the officer awoke, he saw one of the intruders, 18-year-old Deon Antonio Studiemyer, pointing a gun at him, Grangent said. The officer, whose name has not been released, fired his own gun at Studiemyer, killing him."
