A 73-year old man was roused out of bed at 1 a.m. by the sound of someone banging on the back door. While he was investigating, a 19-year old man broke down the door and assaulted him. A 65-year-old female resident pleaded for the intruder to stop, but the attacker would not relent, and began to choke the man. The woman retrieved a handgun and fired a warning shot to startle the intruder into stopping or scare him away. However, the young man continued his savage attack, forcing the woman to take action. She shot the man in the head to make him release her now unconscious fiancé. Once the injured homeowner regained consciousness, the couple called 9-1-1. (kvue.com, Fredericksburg, Texas., 4/12/20)
