As heartrending as this story is i doubt the homeowner had a choice. The intruder yelled at the man and his wife that he was coming for them and he was going to kill them.This was after the homeowner warned the intruder to leave 3 times and that he was armed. It is reported that intruder was going around neigbhood and banging on window's and door's acting strangly.I do have to wonder if the intruder had been black would the media have a field day with this story?

Was the grandson of my brother in law. Too bad for all concerned. Problem is is that bars just serve to much alcohol to their patrons. Yes he was drunk and out of control and I am not trying to justify what he did. In fact if it was me in that bedroom with my girlfriend and had a gun I would have also shot him. From what I know he was a pretty good guy with some problems too bad there is not a way he could have gotten some help.

Maybe you should blame his crank pipe and not the bartenders.
