A Naples, N.Y., man shot and killed an intruder who broke into his
house in the middle of the night and threatened him. Michael
Wojtowich was awakened by his 11-year-old son, who told him someone
was in their house. Wojtowich loaded his 12-ga. shotgun and started
down the steps to find out what was going on. He was confronted by
Brian Dibble, who had previously dated Wojtowich's girlfriend. Chief
Deputy Don DeSmith of the Ontario County Sheriff's department
reported, "We're not sure exactly what was said, but apparently Mr.
Dibble threatened Mr. Wojtowich with bodily harm." After being
threatened, Wojtowich shot Dibble once in the chest. The intruder
was pronounced dead at the scene. Prior to the incident, Dibble was
said to have broken into his old girlfriend's home next door.
