VA: One home invader killed; another captured: "Martin said there were four to five people in the house when the home invasion began. “There were four intruders, three actually made it into the house and one stayed outside,” Martin said. “The gentleman who we took into custody, Kayman Northington, was the first one into the house. After, two more forced their way in behind him.” Martin said once inside, shots were fired. The home owner had a gun pulled on him. “From what we are gathering from the witnesses, everybody started scattering and running,” Martin said. “According to witnesses, the bad guys came in and fired a shot. The home owner grabs his gun and fires a shot at one of the bad guys.” The home’s occupants were able to stop Northington, but the other intruders got away, Martin said. The gentleman that did get shot and was killed was wearing body armor,” Martin said. “That is a trend we are starting to see. According to Martin, the robbery was drug related. He said homeowners have a right to protect their home, and the homeowner in this shooting will not be charged."

CA: Intending killer gets shot himself: "Former Oakhurst resident Danny Henley, 53, was shot and killed after attempting to murder Oakhurst resident Derry Burnett shortly before 6 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 18. The incident occurred at Burnett's residence on Snowline Court off Highway 41, just north of the closed Snowline Restaurant. Henley reportedly broke into Burnett's shed and took a shotgun. When Burnett returned home, Henley confronted him and tried to shoot him but missed. Burnett retrieved a .45 caliber pistol from a vehicle parked on the property and fired at Henley from a relatively close range, Anderson said, hitting him twice -- once in the head and once in the chest. Henley was transported by Sierra Ambulance to a helicopter and then transported to Community Regional Medical Center in Fresno where he died that night around 10 p.m. After an investigation by the Madera County Sheriff's Department, the sheriff is recommending that the district attorney look at the case as justifiable homicide (self-defense). Henley was under investigation for vehicle and metal theft, and had just been released from jail two days earlier on Friday"
