As reported, a business owner used his gun to stop a late-night burglar:

Police say that the owner of a beauty supply store was asleep in their store on the 4600 block of York Road in Baltimore at 4:45 AM when a burglar began to force his way inside.  Acting in self defense, the store owner is said to have shot the burglar in the right leg, ending the attack.  A suspect, whose identity was not released, was taken to a local hospital for treatment, and is expected to face charges upon his release, according to police.  No injury to the business owner were reported.

Once again, a law abiding citizen has used a firearm to defend themselves.  Had this business owner not been armed, they could have ended up injured or killed in their own store.  Luckily, the business owner was armed, and as a result didn’t suffer at the hands of a burglar.
