If it weren't for a Vienna, Ill., woman's quick thinking, she and
her husband might both be dead. At approximately 11:30 p.m., Albert
Rolens heard his dogs barking and went to investigate, finding a
partially opened sliding door. When he reached to close it, a man
wearing a stocking cap, gloves and a large coat thrust a rifle
through the open door and forced his way inside. The intruder
instructed Rolens to wake his wife and unplug the telephones. The
couple told the intruder to leave, but he refused to go without
their granddaughter, his former girlfriend. After several tense
minutes, Mrs. Rolens convinced the intruder to let her husband go to
the bathroom to take some medication. Once there, Albert entered an
attached bedroom and retrieved his .45-cal. revolver, which he
pointed at the man, again telling him to leave. When Mrs. Rolens
grabbed a cell phone and ran to call 9-1-1, the intruder darted
after her. Fearing for his wife's safety, Albert shot the gunman
once in the head, killing him.
