Delaware: Late Night Shooting Leaves One Man Dead: "A man is dead after a late night shooting on McRae Street in Wilmington. His family says the death was senseless. Derrick "Dooby" Marshall, Jr. was shot to death after an apparent argument over a handgun. It happened on the 500 block of McRae Street in an abandoned building. Friends and family of Marshall say the man who shot him was his cousin's husband. Police say it was self defense, and no charges have been made against the shooter. One eyewitness and close friend of Marshall's says he was an all around good guy. An autopsy will be done later this weekend, and police say the case is still under investigation.

Texas: Bar regular may have shot, killed man in self-defense: "A man was shot and killed by a bar patron late Sunday night in what may have been a case of self-defense. According to Harris County officials, a man was apparently sneaking around the bar and at one point went through a back entrance only used by employees. A regular patron saw the man and went to his truck where he had a pistol and kept an eye on him. Police said that's when the suspect went over to the truck and pointed what may have been a gun at the patron, demanding money. The patron pulled out and shot the suspect, who died at the scene. The man was taken to the homicide detectives office to be interviewed.
