Two inmates a county jail overpowered two jail officers and escaped. One was caught by deputies, the other tried breaking into backdoor of the home of a woman who had a carry permit and a gun to go with it. She shot him. He was airlifted to a hospital but pronounced dead.

The sheriff noted: "The lady saved her own life because … she got trained on how to use a gun to protect herself."

ETA: This occurred yesterday (Tue 4 Dec 18), which in a slight coincidence is the same day that Texas executed a third member of the "Texas Seven", a group of seven inmates who overpowered prison staff and escaped from a Texas prison in 2000. While on the loose killed Irving policer Aubrey Hawkins on Christmas Eve 2000. One of the seven killed himself when cornered, the other six were captured, tried, and sentenced to death. Three have been executed, three more still on Death Row.

Didn’t see it because it’s not in the self-defense forum. This is definitely an excellent self-defense story.
