THERE IS A sign on Abel Sisneros' home warning, 'Nothing inside is worth risking your life for. Owners of this property are highly skilled to protect life, liberty and property from criminal attacks.' Authorities, however, say an intruder failed to heed the warning. Sisneros heard a pounding at the front door and grabbed his 9 mm handgun as a precaution. He was at the top of the stairs when the suspect broke through the locked front door. Sisneros fired two shots. The wounded burglar groaned and ran to the back of the house where police arrested him. "He couldn't get out of the back [of the home], and he knew I was still in the front of the house, so he was trapped; Sisneros explained.
