Arizona: Sheriff's deputies say shooting death the result of self-defense: "A 49-year old man was shot to death outside of a residence in the 4100 block of North Soldier Trail in what apparently was a case of self-defense. According to witnesses, the shooting victim entered the home of another man at about 9 p.m. on Tuesday, September 23, and made threats against the man. The victim was shot when he grabbed the other man and began to drag him out of the residence, according to Pima County Sheriff’s investigators. The name of the shooting victim has not been released, pending notification of next of kin"

Missouri: Would-Be Robber Shot: "A clerk at a 7-Eleven stood up to a robber, police said, and shot him dead. An 18-year-old man was attempting to rob the convenience store near East 27th Street and Van Brunt Boulevard at gunpoint when one of the two clerks in the store pulled out his own gun and shot the man, police said. When officers arrived at the store, which is across the street from a police station, they found the teen dead behind the counter, shot once in the neck. "It is fairly unusual for us to have problems here, but convenience stores are one of those targets of opportunity, especially late at night. There were two clerks working at the time. One had on a uniform, one did not. The one that actually ended up doing the shooting was the one who was not in a uniform, but it is rather ironic to have something like this happen in such proximity to a police station," said Capt. Rich Lockhart of the Kansas City Police Department. The man who was shot was carrying a gun, police said. And they said the clerk who had a gun had a permit to carry a concealed weapon.

Missouri: Security Guard Shoots Man At Liquor Store: "A man was shot by a liquor store security guard on Tuesday night, police said. Officers said the guard told them a man, who he thought had a gun, was causing problems at the Royal Liquor Store on Southwest Boulevard about 9 p.m. After telling the man to leave, the guard said the man became violent and during a struggle, the security guard shot him. The man ran off, and police later found him in an alley about a block away. They did not find a gun. The man's injuries are considered life-threatening, police said."
