Florida Homeowner Shoots Intruder: "A 24-year-old man was shot several times in an exchange of gunfire with a Panama Park homeowner Wednesday morning during what police described as a home invasion robbery. Just after 9 a.m., police responding to a burglar alarm at 7100 block of Elwood Avenue found the door of kicked in and Jonathan Comas shot several times. Investigators said Comas and Donovan Thomas, 21, broke into the house, waking up Johnny Johnson. Johnson grabbed his gun and got to the living room in time to see two men turning around to leave. "I was the first person to shoot, I guarantee it, because they were in my house," Johnson said. "I look up, see the guy and I shoot twice, then I start hearing shots." Johnson said he fired five or six shots, then dived for cover when he heard gunfire coming from outside. Police said Comas, who was shot several times, was taken to Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center by Thomas and Sandra Flood, 27, who officers said was driving the vehicle used in the incident. Comas remains in critical condition. "I'm lucky to be alive," Johnson said. "Somebody could have died, and I could have been me." Police said Comas, Thomas and Flood will be arrested and charged with home-invasion robbery".

Texas: Rabid skunk shot: "Comal County recently reported its second documented case of rabies in 2007, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services. The incident was the 37th case in Region 8. A rabid skunk walked into the yard of a home about half a mile east of downtown Bulverde and sprayed the home owner’s chocolate Labrador Retriever on June 21. The owner then shot and transported the skunk to Country Hills Veterinary Clinic for a rabies submission. The dog, which was current on vaccinations, was boostered according to protocol the next day and began a 45-day isolation period, the report said. This incident followed a rabies case involving a raccoon and another chocolate Labrador Retriever in Bulverde on May 17, according to Zoonosis Control."

Tennessee: One Robber Killed, Another In Hospital: "Two men, who tried to rob a patio party, found themselves looking down the end of the apartment owner’s gun barrel. According to witnesses, two men walked up and asked if they were having a party. The men then left and returned with guns and tried to rob the party. Witnesses say the apartment owner then got his gun and told the robbers to put down their guns. When the robbers didn’t, the apartment owner shot both robbers. One robber was shot in the head and killed; the other is in critical condition at the MED with a gun shot wound. Police say they are still investigating the shooting and no charges have been filed."
