A Hollis, N.H., man was awakened one night to the sounds of
screaming in his back yard. The homeowner, Donald Narkis, grabbed
his gun and headed downstairs when he heard glass breaking in the
kitchen. Narkis fired in the direction of the intruder, who,
undeterred, continued to advance as he screamed and smashed
furniture. Together with his armed daughter, Narkis ordered the
intruder onto the floor, but the man wouldn't stay down. Narkis
fired again, but the shot hit next to the intruder's leg. When
police arrived on the scene, the intruder, identified as Peter
Camplin, complained, "that psycho tried to shoot me." Camplin, who
had moved into the neighborhood only months previously, was found to
have a significant amount of cocaine and alcohol in his system.
