Fayetteville man shoots, kills, intruder

"A gunman who broke into a Fayetteville home Friday night was shot and killed by another man who was inside the home at the time, police said.

The gunman and an accomplice forced their way into the house in the 6400 block of Winter Park Drive about 10:50 p.m., said police Sgt. Sam Oates.

An occupant of the home grabbed a small-caliber handgun he kept in the house and fired two shots at the pair as they hastily retreated.

Police found the dead assailant lying in the driveway of a nearby home. A gun was still in his hand, Oates said.

Police hadn’t identified the participants as of 2:30 p.m. Saturday, and no other details were available."

All these stories prove is that the average American needs MORE protection from criminals than do members of law enforcement. Last I checked, cop shops weren't being broken into all that regularly so why is it again that they need better gear than us?

Kudos to the homeowner for taking out at least one of the beasts.
