Two Tennessee women responded to a knock at their door at about 1:30
a.m. and saw two masked men standing outside. The women, who are
cousins, ran to an upstairs bedroom as the men kicked in their back
door. Police spokesman Don Aaron described what happened next. "As
one of [the intruders] came to the doorway of the bedroom where the
two women were hiding, the older cousin, who had retrieved a pistol
from a nightstand, fired one time. The intruder was hit and died at
the scene from a gunshot wound to the head," said Aaron. The other
intruder fired twice but neither woman was injured. The deceased
intruder was identified as Maurice Wilson, who had been charged with
38 offenses in the past three years, Aaron said.
