TX: Mother chases off home invaders with gun: "Investigators have made an arrest in a home invasion near Lake Houston, thanks in part to fingerprints left at the crime scene. The home invasion happened Wednesday, on Yonder Way in the Commons subdivision. According to Harris County deputy constables, a mother and her 10-year-old son were home by themselves when two robbers broke in. The woman put her son in a closet and grabbed her gun, shooting at – but missing – one of the suspects. On Thursday, deputies said they caught one of those suspects, Bradley Wayne Turner. They believe the other suspect is Turner’s brother, Dennis."

FL: Shooter high on testosterone gets shot: "No criminal charges will be filed against the Martin County Fire Rescue lieutenant who fatally shot his brother-in-law in a family confrontation last month at a Palm City home, according to reports released Thursday from the Martin County Sheriff's Office. Investigative reports provide more details to the Jan. 8 incident where Vernon "Sonny" Chason fatally shot his sister-in-law, Pamela Richardson, 49, as he attempted to shoot his estranged wife, Anna Chason, 55. John Richardson, 54, Pamela's husband, fatally shot Vernon Chason, while being critically shot himself. Anna Chason and the Richardsons were at the home with four others getting Anna Chason's belongings when Vernon Chason arrived and later started shooting. "The facts show that he (Vernon Chason) shot Pamela Richardson at a fairly close range and was shooting at his wife and Lt. Richardson," Denton said. "I think Lt. Richardson protected several others from getting shot."
