I've got a gun, don't come any farther," shouted Toluca, Ill.,
homeowner Brad Burns. But the warnings went unheeded and Burns
fired, killing the intruder who was later identified as Douglas
Sullivan.The incident began that night at 2 a.m., when Sullivan
began shouting and swearing outside the home loudly enough to wake
the neighbors. Sullivan then used a playground slide to smash a
window and enter the house. Burns sent his wife and child into a
closet while he retrieved his gun. He tried to scare off the
intruder, but to no avail. Marshall County State Attorney Paul Bauer
declared the shooting justifiable, saying, "There is no doubt in my
mind that they were in fear of their lives."
