Chad Lewis answered a knock at the door of his Sacramento County,
Calif., home late one night and was attacked by a frightening
figure. The home invader, wearing a ski mask and armed with a metal
pipe, struck Lewis repeatedly on the upper body and head. Lewis'
roommate was recovering from knee surgery and could not physically
assist him, but managed to call 9-1-1 and get hold of his rifle, as
he feared Lewis would be killed in the attack. Meanwhile, Lewis
broke free from his assailant and retrieved a handgun from his
bedroom. A struggle ensued over the gun, but Lewis was finally able
to pull free and shoot his attacker. When authorities arrived, both
Lewis and the intruder were taken to the hospital. Lewis' condition
was serious, and his attacker was in critical condition with a
gunshot wound to the head.
