NC: Shooting outside adult book store injures man: "A preliminary investigation has shown that a shooting outside a Bragg Boulevard adult bookstore Wednesday morning may have been self-defense, a police spokesman said. "The initial investigation reveals some question as to who is the actual victim or suspect," Lt. Chris Davis said. "It could be self-defense." The victim, Timothy Chardell Malloy, 25, of Fayetteville, was shot in the leg and taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, Davis said. Malloy spoke to a woman who was outside the store, Davis said. There was a confrontation between Malloy and a man identified as an acquaintance of the woman, Davis said. The two are believed to have fought before the unidentified man shot Malloy, Davis said."

OR: Man shot by girlfriend is arraigned: "An Alsea man who was shot by his girlfriend early Saturday morning was arraigned Tuesday on charges of two counts of unlawful use of a weapon, fourth-degree assault, strangulation and two counts of menacing at the Benton County Courthouse on Monday. Joseph Michael Pellett, 25, was arrested about 9:30 a.m. Monday at 28014 Vernon Road in Alsea, the residence that he shares with his girlfriend, Kaila Courtain, 22. He remained at the Benton County jail Tuesday on $100,000 bail. Pellett and Courtain began struggling over a .22-caliber Smith and Wesson Glock automatic handgun. When Courtain gained control of the weapon, she held it to Pellett's temple, and Pellett told her to shoot him. Pellett then stepped back, and Courtain reportedly shot him through the cheek. Courtain reportedly told sheriff's investigators after the shooting that she shot Pellett early Saturday out of self-defense."

PA: Crack dealer charged for shooting armed robber: "According to police, Doggett was in the midst of an armed-robbery spree with a .357 handgun in Bristol Township’s Bloomsdale-Fleetwing neighborhood when he was killed. Doggett had approached a group of people to rob when Williams, a crack dealer working a corner across the street, shot Doggett in the back with a .22 caliber handgun, police said. Doggett returned fire with his .357, police said, staggered to a nearby alley and died. The shooting, according to court records, was hardly justified because Williams wasn’t in harm’s way. After a four-year investigation by Bristol Township police, Williams was charged this spring in Doggett’s death."
