Mack and Wanda Crawford were awakened about 1:40 a.m. by a thump in
the night. When Mack Crawford grabbed a 9 mm handgun and went
looking for the source of the noise, he encountered a masked man in
his kitchen. The masked intruder demanded Crawford's prescription
for OxyContin and then pulled a weapon. Crawford reported that he
thought it was a gun. A struggle ensued and Crawford fired his gun
several times, hitting his assailant twice in the torso. Crawford
then removed the man's mask and discovered it was an acquaintance
of his. The intruder was taken to the hospital where he was listed
in critical condition. During their investigation, police took into
evidence a straight-blade knife that Crawford said did not belong
