IN: Woman scares off burglar : "A 41-year-old Muncie woman fired a gun at a man who had tried to break into her house, she told police. The thwarted burglary comes less than a week after another Muncie woman beat a suspected burglar with a cooking pot. The woman was asleep early Saturday morning in her home in the 1300 block of East Fifth Street when she heard noises and saw a figure outside her bedroom window, she told police. She went to her front door with her .38-caliber revolver and fired a shot in the direction of the burglar as he ran eastward from her home."

TX: Homeowner shoots intruder: "Investigators want to know why a man who was shot and killed was in a family's home. It's the first deadly shooting in Gillespie county in ten years. Deputies say it appears 30-year-old Dan Speight broke into the homeowners garage. That homeowner woke up, walked up to Speight and asked what he was doing. The homeowner told deputies Speight didn't answer, but ran towards him. Investigators say the homeowner shot Speight twice."
