An Allentown, Pa., man shot two men after they broke into his home. The resident, Joshua Johnston, was upstairs when he heard noises. Johnston went downstairs with a shotgun, and the intruders-wearing ski masks-approached him. He thought one intruder was reaching for a gun so he shot them. The pair apparently were acquaintances of Johnston; it was reported that one of the men had threatened to break into Johnston's home to collect a debt. "He didn't realize he knew the two men until he shot them" said South Side police Sgt. Dan Bonenburger.
