Oregon nutcase shot: "The incident began about an hour earlier when a woman called 9-1-1 to report that her son, James Sartor, 39, was tearing up her house in the 5400 block of NW Ridgmoor. Sartor had been jailed over the weekend after trespassing into the Greek Village Tavern, 301 NW Murray Boulevard, where he had earlier been banned. Sartor left his mother's home on foot before deputies arrived, Thompson said. While at that call, a third one came, from the Buzzettis, that a man was trying to break into their home and that Roger Buzzetti had a gun. Before deputies arrived, Sartor had broken a large bay window and had been shot in the leg by Buzzetti. Once there, deputies arrested Sartor. Results of the investigation will be turned over to a grand jury, Thompson said, to determine what charges Sartor may face, and what legal outcome awaits Buzzetti."

OH: Shooting, attempted robbery: "Police are investigating an attempted robbery that led to a shooting in Winton Hills. Police say a suspect walked into the Treetop Grocery around 10 p.m. Monday night and demanded cash from the clerk. The suspect fired a couple shots at the clerk, who then pulled out his own gun and returned fire. The clerk was shot once but wasn't serious hurt. The suspect wasn't hit and was able to get away."

NV: Pharmacy robber shot in butt: "The suspect went to a pharmacy on the 4100 block of South Eastern Avenue, approached the pharmacy desk and handed a pharmacist a handwritten note demanding the painkiller oxycodone. A pharmacist, who was armed, noticed the man had a gun. The suspect and the pharmacist struggled, and both men ended up with their weapons aimed at each other, Rivera said. The suspect was shot in the buttocks in the struggle, Rivera said. It was unclear whether the pharmacist shot the suspect or the suspect shot himself, he said. After the shooting, police said, the suspect fled in the stolen vehicle. He said the suspect was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center on Tuesday afternoon with nonlife-threatening injuries."

Two-thirds of Canadians back billion-dollar white elephant: "Two-thirds of Canadians support the controversial long-gun registry and even voters who back Prime Minister Stephen Harper's Conservatives are split on the issue, a new poll has found. The national survey conducted exclusively for Postmedia News and Global Television finds that support for the registry stands at 66 per cent nationally. Moreover, support is strong in regions throughout the country — even though Harper has said his party will not "rest" until it abolishes the registry.
