When a quick-thinking Dover, Delaware, area resident heard a
noise coming from his garage early one morning, he instructed his
wife to call police and grabbed his shotgun to investigate. The
resident startled an intruder and seized the element of surprise to
strike the man in the head with the gun's butt, holding him until
police arrived. Police charged the home invader with various counts
related to burglary.
