A victim of burglary four times in the past eight months,
Wayne Jacobs of Phoenix, Arizona, was alerted to the sound of two
men prying open his back door. He yelled at the housebreakers to
leave and when that failed to deter them, he grabbed his gun, shut
himself in a back bedroom, and continued yelling warnings that he
was armed and calling police. The criminals ignored his warnings
and entered the home, making their way to Jacobs' room where the
homeowner shot and killed one of them. The other fled the house.
In a second incident that same evening, Raymond Sheedy, also of
Phoenix, armed himself and confronted a man burglarizing his shed.
When the thief aggressively grabbed for Sheedy's gun, the homeowner
was forced to shoot, killing the attacker.
