IL: Shooting may have been self-defense: "A St. Louis man who died April 20 in a shooting inside a house in the 4700 block of North 20th Street was killed while attacking two others with a nightstick, police said. The case is being investigated as a justifiable homicide. Paul Rose, 34, was shot as he assaulted a man, 31, and a woman, 34, inside the house, police said. Both victims suffered large cuts to their heads in the attack. The male victim shot Rose in self-defense in the altercation, police said.

OH: One robber shot; one escapes: "A second suspect remains at large after last week's failed robbery attempt at a convenience store. The incident happened April 26 at the Lexington Avenue Drive-Thru. Police said Jefferie Barnes had a gun and demanded money from the cash register. Store owner Ahmad Fares shot Barnes three times, according to police. Barnes was struck twice in the back. A ricochet hit him in the ankle. Barnes was taken to Grant Medical Center in Columbus, where he remains. Barnes is known to local law enforcement. He pleaded guilty April 13 to burglary in connection with an August incident. He is scheduled for sentencing in that case June 1. Police said Fares fired five shots with a .40-caliber pistol. He is not expected to face charges. The second suspect is described as black, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 160 pounds."

Conceal and carry shot down in Illinois: "Democratic Governor Pat Quinn and his comrade Chicago Mayor Richard Daley worked the phones, called in favors and leaned on their partisan troops in the legislature to kill a measure which would have allowed law-biding citizens in the ‘Land of Lincoln’ the right to conceal and carry firearms for their protection. Score another victory for the corrupt Chicago machine in their unholy quest to strip the citizens of Illinois of their Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms."
