thought she saw another resident of the apartment building through
the peephole. Police say that when she opened the door, however, two
strangers forced their way in, one of them toting a .22-caliber
rifle. Humphrey's roommate, 24-year-old Michelle Reeder, heard
Humphrey's screams and ran to the bedroom where she retrieved a
handgun. Reeder returned to the front room, where she found Humphrey
being held at gunpoint. The intruder then trained the rifle on
Reeder and threatened to kill her. In response, she fired several
shots, striking her assailant once. The other suspect fled, but the
injured intruder continued to struggle, forcing Reeder to stab him.
He succumbed to his wounds at the scene as the young women fled to
