Winchester Model 1895

Elderly Modesto couple use self defense to protect home, kill would-be intruder
A spokesperson with the department did not confirm whether the victim was the homeowner or the suspect in the home invasion.

MODESTO, Calif — A woman was killed during a home invasion in Modesto in what investigators are calling an act of self-defense.

Sgt. Luke Schwartz of the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office said detectives are currently investigating the home invasion, which happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 29, at a home along the 3900 block of Blue Gum Avenue in Modesto. That area is in a rural part of Modesto, with few homes and lots of farmland.

During the investigation, law enforcement learned a woman attempted to break into the home occupied by an elderly couple by “smashing a sliding glass door with a fire extinguisher,” a press release from the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office says.

The elderly couple called neighbors for help, then “armed themselves with a firearm to defend their property, and told the woman to keep away.”

Homeowner shoots man who reportedly broke into home west of Springfield, Mo.

NEAR SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – Authorities say a man who forced entry into a home west of Springfield was shot Friday morning.

The Greene County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting, which happened just after 6:30 Friday morning. Deputies went to a house in the 6000 block of West Independence. That is an outer road of I-44 near Highway MM, just west of Springfield.

A spokesman for the sheriff’s office says the initial call was for a possible residential burglary. When deputies arrived, they found a man with a gunshot wound.

Investigators say that man forced entry through the front door of the house, then the homeowner shot him after a confrontation.
It’s unknown where the man was shot or his condition, but the sheriff’s office says the suspect was injured and taken to the hospital for treatment.

    That’s a modest Modesto story. Not a lot (if any) meat on them bones.
    “A woman shot at an older couple’s home. Not saying if person shot was homeowner or suspect.”

      Deep in the original article it says the one shot was the home invader. Breaking into a home in the country, where folks routinely have guns, is a high-risk avocation. In today’s set, they are 2 for 2. You reap what you sow.
