It was a terrifying night that refused to end. Edith and William
Stevens, both in their 80s, had already scared away an intruder.
According to the sheriff's department, deputies completed an
investigation and left, but two hours later the couple heard
gunshots outside their home and glass breaking. William got his
handgun and investigated. Finding an intruder in the hallway, he
opened fire and the intruder returned it. "Had Mr. Stevens not had
that handgun, I don't know what could have happened," said Maury
County, Tenn., Chief Deputy Ashley Brown. The couple locked
themselves in the bedroom and tried to phone police, but the lines
were cut. The intruder, who police believe was after money for
drugs, fired once more through a window. After discovering the
intruder had fled, the couple phoned police from a neighbor's house.
