There have been a rash of local area home invasions with overall great results.
The first was just a few weeks ago. The 62 yr old home owner fatally shot the 17 yr old intruder that had a shotgun aimed at her. It should be mentioned that the intruder's family forgave the lady for killing their young son (who happened to have a lengthy history). While I would not have taken the chances she did, it ended well for her family and badly for the intruder.
The next two happened this past week. The first ended with one of the intruders fatally shot by a home owner and another injured as those left standing fled the scene. Then the stupid ones went to another apartment across town to rob again. The resident managed to shoot a couple of them but they also shot her.
