When Jason Goforth, 22, opened his door after hearing a
woman's voice in the early morning hours of December 22, he didn't
expect to have a man shove a rifle in his face. Then "[another]
subject with a gun in his hand tried to kick the door in and push
his way in," said La Vergne, Tennessee, police Capt. Robert Wolf. A
brief struggle ensued, and, according to police, Goforth pulled out
his gun and shot the home invader three times. That was apparently
enough to discourage two other intruders who had accompanied the
first pair. The three who remained were arrested and charged with
aggravated burglary and attempted aggravated burglary. "Most of the
facts on their face appear that [Goforth] was acting in
self-defense," said Wolf.
