As Dante Williams of Gary, Ind., walked toward home one
night, he looked ahead to his basement apartment and noticed a man
standing nearby. Moments later, when Williams attempted to enter, a
struggle ensued with his front door acting as the only barrier
between him and three adversaries. Apparently, the lookout had been
joined by two other men all of whom were now attempting to force an
invasion of Williams' home. According to police, one of the
attackers was armed and fired on Williams. The shaken resident, who
had a permit to carry a handgun, responded with several shots from
his .40-cal. pistol. Police arrived on the scene a short time later
to find Williams, pistol drawn, on the lookout for the other two
assailants. Police also found the body of the third man, who had
been wearing a mask and whose gun had discharged at least once,
lying near the apartment. Williams later identified his other two
attackers who were arrested by police.
