Yev Gerasimenko was taking his turn caring for his 4-day-old
daughter while his wife rested. He was interrupted by loud knocks at
the door and answered it to find two large men. One asked for
someone Gerasimenko didn't know."I said, 'There's no-body here by
that name, and I shut the door as soon as I could," he explained.
That's when police say the biggest man took a running start and
slammed into the door. Gerasimenko called for his wife to take their
baby, lock herself in the bathroom and phone police. He loaded his 9
mm handgun and yelled for the man to leave, but he continued trying
to breach the door."I'm shouting, 'I have a gun! Why are you trying
to break into my house? I'll shoot you if you don't go away,'
Gerasimenko recalled. But the suspect didn't heed the warning.
Gerasimenko fired two shots, wounding the suspect and holding him
for police." ... A gun in a good responsible citizen's hand is a
blessing," Gerasimenko said.
