    Month and a half ago, but I don’t think we’ve covered this one. Even so it’s good enough to read twice.

    Neighbors Call homeowner to tell him there are people in his driveway. He goes to find two guys among his vehicles and two guys in the car out on the street, apparently burglarizing his vehicles. The two guys in the driveway start running but one of them shoots at homeowner, hitting him in the ankle. Homeowner returns fire and hits him. All his pals takeoff in the car and leave the wounded one running around the neighborhood, banging on doors for help and overheard yelling into his phone "Y’all left me. Come pick me up."

    Alas, they did not come to fetch their comrade, and he went to the hospital, and then to jail. Homeowner recovering after surgery.

    Month and a half ago, but I don’t think we’ve covered this one. Even so it’s good enough to read twice.

    Neighbors Call homeowner to tell him there are people in his driveway. He goes up front to guys I’m on his vehicles and two guys in the car out on the street apparently burglarizing his vehicles. The two guys in the driveway start running but one of them shoots at homeowner, hitting him in the ankle. Homeowner returns fire and hits him. All his pals takeoff in the car and leave the wounded one running around the neighborhood, banging on doors for help and overheard yelling into his phone "Y’all left me. Come pick me up."

    And now the police have a number to find his 'associates'.

    Sounds like this is probably a DGU

    Domestic altercation, “primary aggressor” flees with gunshot wound, later captured and charged with felony elder abuse. Two other people treated as victims with minor injuries, no other suspects “at large.”

    Guy‘s truck is stolen, calls cops, tracks it down the via Airtag. Confronts occupants, said one of them pulled a gun, so guy shot him dead. Police investigating, I have not announced whether they found a gun on the dead guy yet.

    There’s a number of the stories floating around where somebody tracked down their stolen vehicle by Airtag, then shot the thieves. Sometimes the tracker charged with murder.

    Man tried to shoot brother and sister operators of a food truck during a robbery. Robber’s gun jammed, which gave the licensed-to-carry sister time to pull her hand gun and shoot him several times. He died in the parking lot. She’s a bit upset that he put her through that, so God bless her for defending herself and family.

    Man threatens store employees with “a large butcher knife”. Three mall security officers confront him in another part of the mall. He threatens them with the knife. When he lunges at them, a bystander pulls his own gun and points it at Mr. knife, who now surrenders the knife. Mall security puts him in restraints and hands him over to the cops when they arrive.

    Drunk 22-year-old decides to try to force his way into not-his house. For reasons I don’t understand house husband opens the door and immediately gets tackled by the drunk. While they’re fighting on the floor his wife runs upstairs and gets a handgun that she bought just a day before (being this is California I’m thinking she bought it 10 days before and it was just released, but whatever).

    Anyway, she comes back down the stairs and unloads five rounds into the intruder who is DRT. Cops say obvious self-defense.
