As Clyde Colley looked down at the gunshot wound in his leg and then
up at his wife, he decided that if he did not do something, they
would both die. Almost two hours earlier, two men had broken into
their Sandlick, Va., home, shot Mr. Colley and ordered the elderly
couple to get on the floor. As one of the intruders held the couple
at gunpoint, the other ransacked the house. Finally, Colley said
that he was not feeling well and needed to go to lie down. This
excuse gave him enough time to get to his gun, which he fired twice,
killing one intruder and sending the other fleeing into the night.
As their phone lines had been cut, Mrs. Colley was forced to run
down the driveway and flag down help. Police later apprehended the
surviving intruder, Mazel Sexton, and charged him with numerous
felony counts. Colley was not expected to be charged in the death of
the intruder, who was identified as Hubert Howard, Jr.
