Asleep in his Las Vegas apartment, Phillip Brown was jarred
awake by loud knocks at his door. Opening the door a crack, he
failed to recognize the visitor, who then kicked his way in.
Ignoring warnings to halt, the intruder rushed Brown and was stopped
only by a blast from the apartment dweller's 12-ga. shotgun. No
charges were filed in the fatal shooting.
