WA: Victim shoots one attacker dead: "Police said Carter asked the victim to come to the south Everett home, and when Carter arrived, the victim, Carter and Odneal went to the garage and began what the victim described as a casual conversation. At some point, without warning, Carter hit the victim in the head with an object and accused him of taking money from his brother, Everett police Sgt. Robert Goetz said. The victim said Carter continued to strike him in the head. When he began to believe that he was going to be knocked unconscious and killed, the victim pulled out a Glock 9 mm handgun and shot Carter multiple times, Everett police said. Police later found Carter dead."

Seattle pharmacist arms himself against pill-seeking thieves: "Less than two hours after picking out a man in a police lineup who held up his drugstore, pharmacist Mike Donohue was getting robbed — again. This robber's face was hidden under the hood of a bulky black sweatshirt. He rocked back and forth anxiously, with his right hand planted in his pocket. Like the other five robbers who had previously held up Donohue's store, the man demanded OxyContin, a popular painkiller known for its high-abuse potential. "My technician came back and showed me the note that said, 'Give me your OxyContin. I have a gun'," Donohue said. Instead of handing over the drugs, Donohue unholstered the Glock 19 handgun he wore beneath his white lab coat and sprinted to the front of the small pharmacy. The pharmacist pointed the firearm, loaded with 15 hollow-point rounds, at the head of the hooded man. "Down!" Donohue yelled. The would-be robber dashed out the door, with the pistol-packing pharmacist giving chase. The man got away, only to be arrested that day."
