    Guilford County man shoots person trying to break into his home, deputies say

    GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. — Guilford County Sheriff's Deputies say a homeowner shot someone trying to break into his home in the middle of the night.
    It happened at a home on Brightwood Church Road in Gibsonville. Deputies say they got a call around 6:20 a.m. Thursday about a discharged firearm.
    When they got there, they found a person with a gunshot wound down the road, not far from the home. Investigators say the suspect was taken to Moses Cone Hospital with unspecified injuries


    Dont break into other peoples homes; its rude, and unhealthy for the intruder.

    Police Wednesday were investigating an early morning incident during which one man allegedly attempted to rob another of his cell phone, and was hospitalized after being shot by the attempted robbery victim.
    It happened about 6:30 a.m. at 3100 45th Street in the Swan Canyon neighborhood of City Heights, San Diego Police Department Officer Dino Delimitros said.
    “An argument between two men turned violent when one of the men attempted to rob the other of his cell phone,” said Delimitros. “The robbery victim produced a handgun and shot the other man once in the upper body.”


    If you are going to rob someone, dont be shocked when they chose not to comply with you in your efforts.

    "Just minutes into New Year’s Day, a teenage boy was shot and wounded in the leg on the North Side of St. Louis. A few minutes later, four people were shot in a different neighborhood, three fatally. By morning, the police were investigating 10 shootings, including five deaths, across the city.

    And the year wasn’t even a day old. Nor was the violence limited to St. Louis, which in 2017 had the nation’s highest murder rate.

    In a country that has become accustomed to gun violence in all its forms, 2020 was off to a typical start. Gunfire echoed across the country in shootings from St. Louis to Philadelphia, and from Michigan to Texas.

    In Cleveland, a man who news reports said was firing off rounds to celebrate the new year accidentally killed his girlfriend. In Florida, near Orlando, two men were killed in a shooting inside a nightclub. And in Baltimore, which closed 2019 with the city’s second-highest number of homicides on record, the police were investigating two killings that happened a few hours before midnight...

    "It was a typical start to the new year in a country accustomed to gun violence, despite an overall drop in violent crime nationwide."

    "As the fireworks burst to mark the new year, so did the guns. On New Year's Day there were 45 non-suicide gun violence deaths across America, according to data compiled by the Gun Violence Archive research group. Including suicides by gun, there were 177 deaths.

    The data is collected in realtime from 6,500 sources and updated as new information in incidents is established. It includes homicides, murders, and unintentional and defensive killings. There were an estimated 132 suicides by gun on New Year's Day and 103 injuries.

    Three mass shootings took place on New Year's Day and the dead amidst the gun violence included three children aged between 12 and 17. Only one incident involved a death at the hands of a law enforcement officer....
