A 23-year-old University of Arizona student was at his residence
several blocks north of campus when two men knocked on the door.
According to police, the knock came at an unusual hour, so the
student retrieved a handgun before opening the door. One of the men
asked to speak to an individual whose name the student didn't know.
At that point, the student noticed the second man was wearing a
bandana and holding a handgun. The student tried to slam the door
shut, but the men, both of whom had criminal records dating to 1997,
forced their way inside. The student drew his handgun, shooting and
killing both men. "Had he not done what he did, he probably would
have been dead right now," said Tucson police Sgt. Fabian Pacheco.
