The Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting that a 78 year-old man was forced to shoot a 17 year-old male who to broke into the house he was sleeping in.
From the article:
"Police told me if I hadn't dropped him with that that first one, he would have got me," [Ted] Ziolkowski said in a telephone interview.
The youth remained in Metrohealth Medical Center under police guard. His mother said late Friday afternoon that "he's fighting for his life."
She said her son had been in trouble with the law before. She also said he'd been shot before, when he was 14 and he caught a stray bullet in the leg during a gang shootout in which he was not involved.
This time he was armed, according to police. They did not identify the weapon, but Ziolkowski said investigators told him it was an ancient chrome-plated .32 cal. Smith & Wesson semi-automatic.

It's important that we clean up the vernacular being used by all involved when discussing Fast & Furious. Specifically, "Botched"; the botched investigation; the botched operation; botched attempt to track firearms that were permitted to "walk" into Mexico. There was nothing "botched" about this whole thing. We must stress the true purpose of Fast & Furious. It was a U.S.-run criminal conspiracy pursued for the ultimate purpose of dismantling the Bill of Rights!
Shootings at Chardon, Ohio high school prompt calls for answers, but first we need to ask the right questionSubmitted by cbaus on February 28, 2012 - 8:00am.
The most negligent, unprofessional, obscene words anyone can ever say are: "It will never happen here." - Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
The nationwide media are reporting that five children have been shot at Chardon High School, and that three of the victims have died. Early reports indicate that the shooter used a .22 caliber handgun in the shooting.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims, their family and friends, and all the students, teachers, and community in Chardon.
In the wake of this latest school violence tragedy, many will inevitably ask "How can we stop these events from happening?" While there are preventative measures that can and should be undertaken to "harden" the target, asking how we can stop these events is ultimately akin to asking "What can we do so that people are never mad, upset, distraught, or troubled?" The simple answer is that, ultimately, we can't. As such, we had better focus on what we can do. With that goal in mind, a more productive question is "How do we stop these events quickly so that we can limit the damage when they do happen?"
