David Ronald Washington, the alleged Memphis, Tenn., 'cat burglar'
tied to a string of residential burglaries, was killed during an
altercation with a homeowner. Washington, who had crept through a
window, came face to face with the resident who shot him during the
ensuing struggle. The burglary spree began in early May, and despite
stepped up patrols by police, they were unable to catch the
criminal. Burglary Bureau Maj. Billy Garrett said, "I hate for
someone to lose their life, but for all of those innocent victims
out there -- they don't have to worry about this particular guy."
