After being "cleaned out" by a previous burglary, video
store owner Randy Woodland of Fremont, Mich., decided to stay nights
at his business. When three men entered the shop by prying open a
door, Woodland confronted them with a shotgun and ordered them to
stop. When the intruders continued to advance, the 27-year-old
businessman opened fire, mortally wounding one suspect. The other
two fled, and one suspect was later apprehended by police.
