Arkansas: They breed 'em tough at Burger King!: "A police report says officers responded to a robbery in progress call at a Burger King about 11 p.m. Monday. Officers said they arrested 22-year-old Jason Robinson, who had a gunshot wound in one thigh. According to investigators, an employee said that, after the robber accosted her and demanded money, he put his gun down so he could place the money in a bag. The employee says she grabbed the gun and it fired as she and the robber struggled for it. She told officers she put the robber in a head-lock and called police. Robinson was treated at a local hospital and was being held at the Jefferson County jail."

Pennsylvania: Elderly couple holds burglar at gunpoint: "An elderly couple held a burglar at gunpoint while waiting for police to arrive at their Stroudsburg home Saturday morning. Devin Tyler Ayala, 24, [above] of Stroudsburg ripped a screen on a porch, climbed through and entered the Sarah Street home through a door. That set off an alarm. A 68-year old woman had been sleeping on the couch on the first floor. She awoke, pushed past Ayala and screamed for help to her husband who had been sleeping upstairs. The husband, 74, came down stairs with a gun and kept Ayala in place until the Stroud Area Regional Police responded according to the police report. Ayala is charged with burglary, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct." [Ayala is an Hispanic name]

Florida: Woman shoots suspect with own gun: "A 19-year-old man was arrested after a woman told police the armed man sexually battered her before she took his gun and fired, apparently hitting him in the leg, according to a recently released affidavit. Major Lee Barnes [above], of the 1200 block of North 19th Street in Fort Pierce, faces sexual battery, robbery with a firearm and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon charges after the May 14 incident that happened about 12:02 a.m. He pointed a handgun at her and told her to take off her pants. She said the man searched her private area for money and stole her cellular phone. The man told her to get on her knees and perform a sex act on him. She was intimidated by the armed man and did so. During the sex act, she saw the handgun, which the man put in his pocket “as he put his arms back in an apparent relaxed gesture,” the affidavit states. She grabbed the weapon and pointed it at him. The man charged toward her, and she fired before the man fled the area. Friends of Barnes’ apparently took him to the emergency room with a gunshot wound to the right leg."

Colorado Home Intruder Shot Dead: "A 28-year-old Pueblo man was shot and killed by an occupant of a South Side home early Tuesday morning after he and two other men reportedly forced their way into the residence. John Pete Sullivan died at the scene from a bullet wound to the back, according to police Sgt. Eric Bravo. Bravo said police believe Sullivan was one of three masked men who forced their way into the home at 3117 Aster St. at about 3 a.m. with the intent of robbing the home’s occupants. Police are still looking for the two other men, whom were not identified, and a female, identified as Natasha Villalobos, who is believed to have orchestrated the crime. Sullivan was a known gang member. Bravo said drugs appear to be motive for the crime. “It looks like a drug rip-off that went south,” he said."

Note: Clayton Cramer has up a version of the second story I ran yesterday in which Clayton seems to have mistaken who got shot. I would have added that in a comment but Clayton does not allow comments.
