GERRY STECKMYER AND his wife awoke to a loud commotion and were
shocked by what they saw outside their bedroom window -- a deranged
man was shouting and jumping on the roof of their car. Police say
that when Mr. Steckmyer opened the window and shouted at the man to
get off the car, the man walked toward the house and started trying
to break in. He kicked the home's front door and slammed his
shoulder into it. Steckmyer repeatedly told the man to leave and
warned that police were on the way, but there was no stopping the
man's odd behavior. He grabbed a 5-gallon water cooler bottle,
smashed in'a window and entered the home. When the intruder neared
the master bedroom, Steckmyer shot him with a handgun, killing him.
