A Dunn, N.C., man and his wife were awakened about 2 a.m.
one Saturday by sounds of someone beating on their back door. Two
armed men then kicked in the front door and entered the living
room. The suspects allegedly threatened to kill the homeowners. "I
begged them not to kill us," said Rastus Hudson, 61. "I told them
I'd give them anything we had." Under the pretense of retrieving his
wallet, Hudson pulled his handgun from under a mattress and started

Hudson shot one of the home invaders in the shoulder. "[He] has a
right to protect his home and his family," remarked Maj. Steve West
of the Harnett County Sheriff's Dept.
