TIM WELBY WAS putting tools away when he noticed his back door was
suspiciously ajar. According to authorities, he found several signs
of burglary and was missing a firearm. "As far as I know, there's an
armed person inside my house, so I go and grab my .357 out of my
nightstand," Welby explained. That's when he heard noises coming
from the garage apartment where his stepson, Tristan Pierce,
resides. In the apartment, he encountered a man wearing a motorcycle
helmet. Thinking it might be his stepson, he called out, "Tristan?"
Silence followed, until the helmeted man said, "Please, sir." When
Welby knew the man wasn't Tristan, he pointed the gun at him and
said, "You move, I've got a biohazard on my hands." Hearing the
commotion, several neighbors came out of their homes with guns ready
to help. One of them called 9-1-1 and the intruder was arrested
