WAS THAT you?" Les Daniel asked his 10-year-old grandson, who was
sleeping in another bedroom. "No" the boy said. That was all Daniel
needed to hear. Police say he quickly armed himself with two
handguns and went to investigate the sounds he'd heard. Fish tank
lights in the unlit dining room shone against a hooded stranger.
"Who is it?" Daniel asked. "KCP," the man said, apparently meaning
Kansas City police. Daniel detected two more prowlers. "Whatever you
think I got, you're wrong!" Daniel called out. "There ain't anything
in here! You're about ready to die over eight dollars!" Daniel let
them know he meant it by racking the slide on his .357-caliber
Glock. All three men promptly fled.
