A Las Vegas, Nev., woman shot and killed her next-door neighbor,
whom she had previously caught burglarizing her home. Felipe Starks
was trying to evade police officers, who wanted him in connection
with a string of burglaries and a parole violation, by using a crawl
space above the two apartments. The woman had just stepped out of
her shower when Starks crashed through her ceiling. Fearing for her
life, she picked up a gun she had purchased after the burglary in
April, and fired several shots at Starks, who ran back into his
apartment. Police took him into custody, but he later died of his
wounds. Las Vegas homicide Lt. Tom Monahan said it appeared the
woman had cause to fear for her life. "If a man fell through the
ceiling right after you're getting out of the shower -- I'm told she
had just finished drying off -- I think it's reasonable that you
would be terrified," he said.
