"Good Guy" Gets Shot With Own Gun

I wouldn't call this news, because this is by far the likeliest outcome of people thinking they have to be their own police force.

Mark Boxley at the Courier:

A man attempting to break into a Bullitt County home shot a woman with her own gun Monday after she confronted him at her back door, Bullitt County Sheriff’s Detective Scotty McGaha said.

The incident happened at about 4 a.m. in the 300 block of Smith Lane in Hillview when the woman got up to let her dogs out, he said.

The woman told investigators she heard a noise and grabbed her 9mm handgun. When she opened her back door she was face to face with the suspect, police said.

The man — described as being about 35 years old, white with no facial hair and wearing a red baseball cap — was able to take the gun away from the woman and shot her once in the shoulder, McGaha said.
