Suspecting a burglar in his Denver, Colo., home, Paul Borne investigated with a .38 cal. pistol in hand. He fired and missed when he confronted an armed intruder in the bedroom. Borne attempted to fire again, but the gun jammed. In the scuffle that ensued, Borne wrested away the burglar's gun and shot him fatally. The intruder had been free on bond while awaiting trial as a habitual offender.
