A homeowner in Pico Rivera, Calif., defended himself with a firearm when two alleged gang members attempted to burglarize his home on Sept. 18, 2020.

The incident occurred when the two individuals forced their way in early that Friday morning. The homeowner heard the commotion of the break-in and armed himself with a gun. He came across the first intruder, who had broken through a back window. The homeowner fired, wounding the intruder. The homeowner then went out onto his back patio, where he came across the second intruder.

The homeowner confronted the alleged gang member, who then appeared to reach for a firearm. In response to the intruder’s movements and fearing for his own life, the homeowner shot and killed the individual. The first intruder, wounded, fled the residence and jumped into a getaway car waiting in the street. Police arrived at the burglarized residence around 1:15 a.m.

The getaway driver took the wounded intruder to a hospital for emergency care, where authorities then took the individual into custody. (abc7

From the Armed Citizen® Archives June 1968   

Mrs. Verda Byrd, 44, of Claremont, Okla., got out of her car in Tulsa to make an early-morning phone call and found herself trapped in the phone booth by a youth who thrust what she thought was a pistol into her back. The youth forced her back into her car and clutched her.

Snatching a .22-cal. pistol from the seat, she shot him and ran back to the phone booth to summon police. The wounded youth started the car and rammed the booth, but fell dead. Mrs. Byrd escaped uninjured. (Tulsa, Oklahoma., World)
