An Olympia, Washington, resident, along with his wife and their two children, was asleep at 2 a.m. one Saturday when a burglar forced open the kitchen door of their home. Roused by the noise, the homeowner armed himself with a 20-ga. shotgun and confronted the trespasser, warning him to leave. When the warning went unheeded and the man advanced toward him, the homeowner shot once, killing the intruder.
