GA: Homeowner Shoots, Kills Intruder: "Police said a home invasion led to a deadly shootout in a south Fulton County neighborhood early Wednesday morning. One intruder is dead and a neighbor hit by a stray bullet is in the hospital. Channel 2 Action News reporter Amy Napier Viteri spoke with police who said two men kicked in the door of a Creel Road home at about 1 a.m. and began firing weapons and demanded money from a 24-year-old son living there. The man’s father heard the noise and came in with his own gun, shooting and killing one of the men, police said. The other would-be robber was able to drive away, police said."

OK: Self-defense considered in shooting at Tulsa apartment complex: "The men went their separate ways briefly before the confrontation resumed, he said. When it did, McDowell said, the older man fired a shotgun at the younger man, spraying the victim with pellets. ... Police believe that the victim also fired a pistol at the older man, although he did not admit that to officers when he was initially questioned at the hospital, McDowell said."
