Leon Peterson of Cottonwood Heights, Utah, got a pistol when
he heard someone knocking on the doors to his home but found no one
there. When he opened one door, however, several teenagers crashed
in, one swinging a baseball bat. After issuing warnings, Peterson
unleashed several shots, killing the bat-wielding intruder. Police
said Peterson acted justifiably and arrested several suspects,
including Peterson's estranged wife, alleging she hired the youths
to beat Peterson and retrieve the couple's daughter.
