Mike Smith was napping when the sound of someone breaking into his
home jarred him back to consciousness. He clutched a .38-caliber
pistol with one hand and dialed 9-1-1 with the other. According to
reports, when he stepped into the hallway, he saw the silhouette of
a man through his window blinds and an alleged female burglar in
the foyer. When she stepped toward him, he gripped the pistol with
both hands and fired several shots. Both suspects fled. The woman
was apprehended by police and was taken to the hospital, where she
was listed in stable condition. Her male accomplice was still being
sought. "There's no doubt that committing burglary is extremely
dangerous ... because you don't know ... if the homeowner is going
to be armed," said Sgt. Terrell Marshall of the Sacramento Police
