Ohio burglar shot at: "Springfield Police said a man was arrested Thursday and charged with breaking into a duplex on Thrasher Street for the second time in two weeks. 19-year old James Paul Russell is charged with two counts of burglary. Police said someone who lives in the duplex saw Russell and another man leaving his home and fired a shot at them. No one was hurt. Russell allegedly broke into the duplex after an inmate in the Clark County Jail told him that it was an easy target."

North Carolina store owner shoots youth: "A store owner shot a teenager trying to rob his west Charlotte convenience store this evening, police said. The would-be robber had serious injuries and was taken to Carolinas Medical Center. An alleged accomplice, a teenager whose name and age also were not immediately released, was arrested. He is being questioned by officers tonight, but officers have not said what the teens will be charged with. The shooting happened at about 8 p.m. inside the Bradford Food Mart, near Interstate 85 and Freedom Drive. The teens walked into the store and demanded money, said Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Spokesman Officer Robert Fey. At least one of the teens was armed. So was the store's owner, Fey said. The owner and the suspects exchanged gunfire, and one of the suspects was hit in the stomach. The owner wasn't hit. The teenagers ran out the store's front door and down nearby Saratoga Street, but apparently couldn't make it far and were apprehended by police officers a few hundred yards from the store. Paramedics took one to the hospital, and the other was arrested at the scene. Fey said he wasn't sure why the uninjured teen didn't run."
