JOHN KILGORE TOOK precautions to guard his home against invasion,
including the construction of a gate and a sign warning that a
security dog lived on the property. As Kilgore and his family
unpacked from a vacation, police say a burglar thought he saw an
opportunity to circumvent Kilgore's safeguards, but apparently
overlooked Kilgore's final line of defense -- a loaded firearm. The
family left a door unlocked as they brought in luggage, and the
burglar hurried inside. Kilgore's wife stumbled upon the man in a
bedroom, ran out screaming and pulled her two sons into another
bedroom. Kilgore ran to his family's aid, shooting the suspect as
Mrs. Kilgore dialed 9-1-1. The intruder was listed in critical
condition at the hospital.
