Two Out of Three Ain't Bad

A homeowner defended himself from three burglars, putting two of them in the hospital (and eventually into police custody). Two Men Shot After Burglary; One Man on the Loose
Police say that man, Jonathan Rogers, is one of three men who broke into a home on Bartlett Street, on the other side of the UNR campus. They believe the homeowner shot Rogers, who ran through the campus and onto Virginia Street, where he collapsed.

The second suspect, Guy Ruiz, also ran off, apparently not hurt, and is still on the loose.

The third suspect, Robert Marin, was apparently held at gunpoint by the homeowner for several hours. Police say the homeowner was somehow injured over the course of the incident and was unable to call police or go for help.
He eventually was forced to shoot the guy he held at gunpoint, at which point he called police.

So one elderly homeowner exercising his right to self-defense gets two goons off the street, and lets police know the identity of the 3rd, who will eventually be found. Let's hope they all go away for a good long while.

Good Guys 2, Bad Guys O? Well, maybe. Self-defense is a human right.
