Airman shot by Leftist fruitcake is recovering: "A Reynoldsburg High School alumnus serving in the U.S. Air Force is recovering after he was shot in New Jersey on July 4. Senior Airman Jonathan Schrieken, 22, said from a hospital bed tonight that he’s still too tired to discuss the shooting, in which he was targeted, apparently at random, by a suicidal gunman, authorities said. But Schrieken said he was recuperating and resting with relatives from Ohio at his side. He was in serious but stable condition at Cooper University Hospital in Camden, N.J., said Senior Airman Danielle Johnson, a spokeswoman at McGuire Air Force Base. Johnson refused to elaborate. He was critically injured in the shooting, which occurred around 5:30 p.m. on Independence Day in Willingboro Township, N.J., about 20 miles northeast of Philadelphia. Schrieken had walked out of his house to get something out of his car when a man approached and shot him once in the chest with a small-caliber handgun and then turned the gun on himself, said First Assistant Prosecutor Raymond Milavsky of Burlington County, N.J. The shooter, identified as Matthew Marren, 22, of Pennsauken, N.J., was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital that night". [More here]

Florida clerk shoots robber: "Police say a store employee has shot a robber on East Lake Avenue. It happened around 3 p.m. at the Yasmin Food Mart. That's at the intersection with Potter Street. Detectives say 17-year-old Xavier Pierre Whitehead came into the store with a gun and was wearing a Spiderman mask. "He demanded money, told them to open the till and get all the money out and that's when the struggle started, and the struggle over the gun and the shot was fired," said Tampa police spokesperson Andrea Davis. Whitehead was taken to Tampa General Hospital. There's no word yet on his condition."

Texas carjacker killed: "The suspect in a carjacking was killed after one of the victims he kidnapped shot him Friday morning at the victim's house. A man described as a 25 year-old Hispanic male carjacked the couple at a nightclub, according to Bexar County deputies. The suspect then demanded money from the couple, but they told the suspect that they did not have any cash. Then, the suspect demanded to be taken to the victims' home in the 1100 block of Buckskin Bend. One of the victims said that as the suspect was loading items from the house into a suitcase, he got a gun and shot the suspect in the head. Deputies were called to the scene of the shooting about 4:30 this morning. Deputies do not believe the couple will be arrested. They will be taken downtown to give statements."
