Stockton Record, Stockton, CA, 7/3/98

Thursday, October 1, 1998

Brent Berkebile, Jr., 21, was in for a rude surprise when he opened his front door late one evening. He instantly came face-to-face with an armed man who demanded money. While Berkebile complied, his girlfriend ran out of the house to summon help at the nearby house of Brent Berkebile, Sr., who returned with a shotgun. Berkebile, Sr., fired at the bandit as he attempted to escape from his son's residence. Police later found the man across the street in some bushes, alive, but with a gunshot injury to the shoulder. "It looks like he did what he had to do and nothing more," said a police spokesman of the elder Berkebile.
