A string of burglaries that targeted a garage where Bret
Hutchison had stored personal belongings prompted the Mesa, Ariz.,
resident to arm himself and hunker down inside. Having prepared for
a long wait with food and other supplies, Hutchison was surprised
when he heard thumping sounds little more than an hour later.
According to police accounts provided by Hutchison, the sounds
turned out to be a burglar crawling through a vent from the
adjoining house. After the man climbed down into the garage and
noticed him, said Hutchinson, he threw a brick and then went for
another weapon. "When [the suspect] reaches toward his back area and
says he's going to kill him, Hutchison closes his eyes and shoots,"
said Sgt. Don Rosenberger, a spokesman for the Maricopa County
Sheriff's Office. The shots found their target, sending the suspect
to a local hospital.
