CA: Magnum-toting woman kills robber: "One Sacramento man is dead and three others are in custody following an apparent home invasion robbery attempt in Laytonville Saturday morning. When deputies responded to the Laytonville residence following the 7:21 a.m. 9-1-1 call, they found the masked body of Timothy Burger, 21, of Sacramento, lying just outside. Jill Cahill, of Laytonville, who lives at the residence, had two friends visiting at the time of the robbery. She told deputies the three masked men broke into her home, sprayed them with pepper spray, and then shot one of her visitors in the leg, sparking the ensuing firefight. She told deputies she fired at the three masked robbers with her .357 magnum pistol and believed she killed one. The other two masked men fled on foot."

OH: Pill dealer shoots robber: "Ford was killed at 11:26 p.m. on Oct. 21 at Dayton's home at 70 Wisconsin Ave. Dayton said he shot Ford after he answered a young woman's knock on his door. His gun in a pocket, he opened the door. "She had stepped up to block the screen door from being closed," he said. Dayton said he didn't see Ford until he moved in and struck Dayton on the head with a handgun. The two struggled for several seconds before Dayton shot Ford. "I wasn't trying to kill the guy," he said. "I feel bad about what happened." Because Dayton said he acted in self-defense, police said the case will be presented to a grand jury that will determine whether any charges should be filed."

IN: Self-defense shooter released: "Cooper and his cousin, Doug, were driving down Pulliam Road on Sunday night to go spotlighting for deer, the illegal practice of shining bright lights at night to watch the activity of deer for hunting. They were stopped by Cherry, according to a news release from the Clark County Sheriff’s Department. Cherry told investigators that Cooper was sitting in the driver’s seat and pulled out a long rifle and threatened to kill him. However, police questioned his story when they did not find any weapon in Cooper’s vehicle. Police found the shotgun that Cherry had alleged Cooper was holding at another person’s house. Mull said the cousins drove by a friend’s house and threw the shotgun in a field while on the way to the hospital. The person at a nearby residence apparently picked up the weapon and brought it inside the house... Cooper has had numerous legal issues in the past."
