A Dunn, N.C., homeowner shot and killed a man who threatened him
with a gun in a botched home invasion attempt. Terry Alston and his
family had just returned from a barbecue at his mother-in-law's at
about 10 p.m. His wife went upstairs to bed, and Alston sat down in
his living room with his son and daughter to watch television.
About 20 minutes later, someone knocked on his door. Thinking it
was his sister-in-law, Alston opened the door and was surprised to
find two strange men. The men said their car had broken down and
asked to use the phone. Alston handed them a cordless phone and
closed his front door as he felt the men were acting suspiciously.
He picked up his .38-cal. revolver and, when he returned to his
front door, the men were trying to push it open saying they were
done with the phone. When Alston opened the door to retrieve the
phone, one man, armed with a gun, tried to push his way in,
announcing, "You know what time it is." Alston fired several times
at the gunman, fatally wounding him. The other man escaped in a car
with a third accomplice, but was later arrested thanks to a
detailed description from Alston's son.
