A Bristol, Ind., man was twice lucky when an armed intruder aimed a
gun at his owner's head and it misfired. The stranger knocked on
the owner's door about 10 p.m., and the owner's niece answered. The
man pulled a gun and demanded to see her uncle, asking for him by
name, the woman later told police. Soon after the homeowner
returned and confronted the armed man, who attempted to shoot the
owner twice, but was foiled when his gun misfired. The homeowner
took that opportunity to run into his bedroom and retrieve his own
gun. The intruder followed him, and the two men fought until the
owner was able to pull his gun and shoot his tormenter in the side.
The intruder then fled and police began searching for the suspect.
The homeowner told police he was not familiar with his attacker,
even though the man had asked for him by name.
