“According to the report the male resident reported shooting the suspect after he forced entry into the apartment.”

As written, the resident forced his way into his own apartment.

“The male robber pointed a gun before the ring seller pulled out their own gun and fired a ‘self-defense’ shot at him, Holmes said.”

The “ring seller pulled out their own gun.” How many is the “ring seller?” Answer: One. How many is “their?” Answer: More than one.

“There was also drugs found in the car.”

How many is “drugs?” Answer: More than one. What does “was” signify? One. Here is a suggestion: Police said drugs were also found in the car. Or, Police also found drugs in the car.
