Well, the guy with the gun, who apparently shot the intruder, who was lying dead on the bathroom floor.. HE should have been able to know that he eliminated the threat, no ? Apparently he evacuated the scene of the shooting (the bathroom), and was mistaken by police for the male armed intruder.How could the homeowner know the threat had been neutralized?
I agree this is a massive problem, and ironically, this story also illustrates why home defense is important.
But not how the homeowner could have avoided being shot.
if he had time - and the confidence - to retrieve from the armed intruder after he shot him - and again, i don't know what is the "normal" reaction in such a highly adrenalin and stress filled situation - he should have dropped his weapon.. especially if he was aware that police was on its way.
