Hearing the sound of breaking glass coming from the monitor
in their 13-month-old baby's room, a Parkrose, Oreg., couple rushed
to investigate. The mother got there first, finding a naked and
bleeding man in the room. She grabbed the child and ran from the
room, just as Howard Prink arrived with his handgun. When the
intruder lunged at the resident, despite repeated warnings, Prink
fired a single shot--killing the man.
