11-Year-Old Girl Wards Off Home Invaders With Pink Rifle

AZ: Beer heist turns into shootout: "A botched beer heist became a dangerous early morning shootout at a Phoenix convenience store, police said Sunday. The shooting occurred when three men entered a store near 51st Avenue and McDowell Road about 1:45 a.m. The suspects tried to take beer from the store and were stopped by a 25-year-old man, who was not a store employee, said Sgt. Tommy Thompson, a spokesman for Phoenix police. One of the suspects, a 17-year-old, shoved the man to the floor and shot him, Thompson said. The victim in return shot the youth. "He (the teen) didn't realize the other man was armed too. That man pulled his gun out and he shot the teenager," said Thompson. Both men were taken to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries."
