Early one morning, a Sunset Hills, Missouri, man heard a knock at
his back door. Deciding to err on the side of caution, he retrieved
his handgun and carefully opened his door to a stranger who asked
for gasoline. Before the homeowner could respond, the stranger
forced his way into the house, where a struggle ensued. When the
intruder shocked the homeowner with an electric stun gun, the
homeowner responded by firing one shot at the intruder, who ran out
of the house and made it about 200 yards before falling dead. At
press time, police were trying to identify the man who appeared to
be in his 20s, but who had no ID. In addition, no car was found in
the area. The homeowner, whose name was not released, was not
seriously hurt in the incident.
