When two gunmen accosted a resident near his Indio, Calif., home, and shot him in the leg, they quickly had the tables turned on them. A housemate returned fire with a gun of his own, wounding one of the gunmen, and sending both fleeing. Responding officers later arrested the suspects after a brief car chase.
