AL: Thwarted by gun at laundromat, knife-wielding woman robs Dollar General: "An Irvington woman tried to rob a man at knifepoint Thursday at a south Mobile County laundry facility, only to be chased away when he pulled out a gun, authorities said today. The same woman then went on to rob a dollar store hours later, according to a Mobile County Sheriff's Office news release. Terry Guidry, 40, was arrested on 2 counts of first-degree robbery. Guidry is accused of walking into the M&D Coin Laundry on Bellingrath Road at 10 a.m. armed with a knife and demanding money from a man inside, according to a Mobile Police Department news release. The man then grabbed his pistol and pointed it at the woman, who then fled in a black pickup truck, police said. A couple of hours later, a Dollar General store on Irvington-Bayou La Batre Highway was robbed at knifepoint, according to a Mobile County Sheriff's Office news release. An anonymous tip led authorities to Guidry."

AL: Suspect Killed in Attempted Robbery of Mini Mart: "A fatal shooting occurred Tuesday morning at Yantley Mini Mart, 2410 Highway 10, in Choctaw County, Ala. According to authorities, a suspect attempted to rob the operator of the store around 5:20 a.m. Choctaw County Sheriff James Lovette said the 19-year-old suspect told the owner of the store to "put your hands up, this is a robbery". Lovette said the owner retrieved his pistol and shots were fired by both him and the suspect. The alleged robber died instantly. The owner was not harmed. At this time Sheriff Lovette says his office will not pursue charges against the owner of the store. The name of the robbery suspect was not immediately released pending notification of his family, but the man is from the local area."

FL: Young drunk shot, survives: "The "Stand Your Ground" self-defense law has left one Wesley Chapel couple frustrated and concerned. William and Jeanann Kuch became interested in the 2005 law after a homeowner shot their 23-year-old son in the chest Aug. 1. Their son, also named William, drunkenly wandered up to Gregory Stewart's front door at about 5 a.m. and tried to open it. A short time later, the younger Kuch was on the ground with a bullet wound to the chest. He spent the next month in the hospital recovering. Pasco County Sheriff's Office deputies initially arrested Stewart on an aggravated battery charge, but prosecutors with the Pasco-Pinellas State Attorney's office have declined to prosecute him. Assistant State Attorney Manny Garcia said the investigation determined that Stewart shot Kuch because he believed Kuch presented an imminent danger to him and his family. "It falls under 'Stand Your Ground,'" Garcia said."
