A pregnant woman was lying on the couch in her home when she heard
the mini-blinds on her kitchen door rustle. Police say the woman,
whose 1- and 3-year-old children were also in the home, got up to
investigate and found a man trying to break in. When she spotted
him, he ran around the corner of the duplex to the front door and
tried to kick it in. The woman warned the prowler that she had a
gun. When he replied that he also had a gun, she shot at him and he
returned fire. The intruder was hit in the chest and died on the way
to the hospital. No one else was injured.
