WA: Intruder shot and killed: "The Pierce County sheriff’s office says an intruder was shot and killed during a home invasion robbery near Puyallup early Wednesday morning and police are searching for a second suspect involved in the invasion robbery. Sheriff spokesman Ed Troyer said two masked men broke into the home about 6:30 in the morning and pistol-whipped a man who was home with his girlfriend, demanding to know where “the jewelry” was. The invaders did obtain some jewelry and one of the masked men walked outside to load some things into his car, which is when the girlfriend of the man who was pistol whipped grabbed a shotgun from under a bed and handed it to her boyfriend and gunfire erupted between the homeowner and the robbers. Each fired several shots at the other and one of the robbers was hit but police later learned the robber was hit by a bullet fired from his accomplice’s gun."

WA: Resident shoots back: "A man who returned fire against an intruder was transported to an area hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to a Vancouver Police Department news bulletin. The suspect was shot “multiple times,” police said. He suffered life-threatening injuries in the shootout at a home in the 1400 block of Northeast 131st Avenue.... at about 4 a.m., an unknown male came to the door displaying a gun and shot at the resident, according to police. The resident grabbed a nearby gun and fired back, hitting the suspect multiple times."
