A Tacoma, Wash., woman shot and killed her 48-year-old ex-boyfriend after he broke into her home and threatened to kill her. The man broke into his former girlfriend's home about 10:30 one Thursday night. The woman ran into her bedroom, and the man pursued her. When he entered the bedroom, the woman fired one fatal shot at him, dropped the gun, called 911 and fled the house. The intruder had two convictions for domestic violence against the same woman within the past year.
