Paul Garner was awakened by shattering glass when, police said, an
intruder with a prior burglary conviction attempted to break in
through a window. Garner grabbed his .45-caliber, semi-automatic
handgun and, when the burglar lifted the window blinds, he fired
three rounds. The intruder died at the scene. The incident was at
least the fifth time since April that a San Antonio property owner
shot an intruder.
