LA: Cab driver shoots would-be robber: "A Shreveport teenager remains hospitalized after police say he was shot several times by a Casino Cab driver Saturday night. 'With one of them not having a mask on at all, having his face completely exposed, I felt as they were going to get my money and kill me,' said the cab driver who asked not to be identified. Detectives say the cab driver was called to the 3500 block of Ninock Street to pick up a fare. They say Arthur Joseph, 20, got into the back driver-side seat. Seconds later, another man wearing a mask over his face got into the back passanger-side seat, pointed a gun at the driver and demanded money. The driver pulled out his handgun and opened fire. 'I came up with my 9mm and started shooting. I shot him five times,' he said."

Australia: Have-a-go couple shoots intruder: "A man and woman have struggled with a gunman who broke into their Queensland home, shooting the intruder with his own shotgun. The couple managed to disarm the man, but also suffered injuries themselves, police said today. The drama began about 11pm (AEST) last night, when the shotgun-wielding offender forced his way into the home at Stratford near Cairns. The man and woman were attempting to disarm him when the gun went off. The couple suffered hand and heel injuries, while the intruder was shot in the knee. The couple was then able to restrain the man until police arrived".
