NY: Robber shot by woman in home-invasion robbery: "An Erie man who was shot in the hip during a home-invasion robbery on the city's east side on Dec. 7 has been charged with threatening and assaulting two people during the attempted robbery. Michael D. Gunn, 28, of the 600 block of East 12th Street, was in the Erie County Prison on $100,000 bond Tuesday following his arraignment before Erie 4th Ward District Judge Tom Robie Monday on charges of robbery, criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault and carrying a firearm without a license. Erie police accuse Gunn and another man, whom they have not named or charged, of entering a residence in the 1100 block of Wallace Street on Dec. 7. Police said Gunn was carrying a loaded .22-caliber handgun, and he pointed it at two people inside of the residence as he demanded money and jewelry from them, according to the criminal complaint. The gun fell to the ground at some point during the confrontation, and a woman who was in the house picked up the gun and fired two shots. One of the shots hit Gunn, police said."

FL: Robber Shot By Victim Gets 15 Years In Prison: "A man who was shot during a botched robbery in West Palm Beach will spend the next 15 years in prison. Roger Horne pleaded guilty Tuesday to armed robbery and aggravated assault. He was sentenced immediately after entering the plea. Horne robbed a man outside a Longhorn Steakhouse the day after Christmas last year. The man, who was with his family at the time, gave Horne several hundred dollars. The man eventually pulled out his own gun and shot Horne several times, wounding him. The man then called 911 and waited for deputies to arrive."

KY: Police obtain warrant for would-be robber who was shot: "Lexington police have obtained an arrest warrant for a would-be robber who they say was shot by his intended victim last week. Darrell Wayne Strunk, 35, of Lexington is wanted in a Dec. 5 robbery at B&N Towing, 336 Lisle Industrial Dr., according to a news release from Lexington police. A man working at the business told police that he was approached by two people, one of whom was holding a handgun. The man, who was not identified, pulled out his own handgun and shot the man with the gun, who is believed to be Strunk, in the abdomen. The intended victim suffered minor injuries during a struggle with the two, but police said nothing was taken."
