A Clint, Tex., homeowner armed himself after his shouts
brought no reaction from a man he found trying to force open a
sliding glass door into his home. When the homeowner went outside to
confront the stranger, the man raised a shovel threateningly and the
homeowner fatally shot him. The confrontation followed an earlier
incident when the man went berserk on a Greyhound bus, shattering
its windshield with his head, authorities said.
