Police say Bryan Derocher saw two suspicious men prowling around his
property, so he called his brother, Chris, who lives on the property
in a separate dwelling. Chris hurried home to find his garage window
damaged and motion-sensor light on. Bryan, armed with a handgun,
joined Chris to investigate. When they opened the garage door, they
discovered the two prowlers inside. One man aimed what appeared to
be a gun [later identified as a BB gun] at the Derochers. Bryan
fired two shots, killing the gunman. The other prowler threw his
hands into the air and waited for police. His dead accomplice had
previous arrests for armed robbery, burglary, illegal carrying of a
firearm and other serious charges. Police were investigating about
15 recent burglaries -- an unusual number for the area -- and
suspect the prowlers' involvement.
