68-year-old William Bozman was asleep at home in Baltimore, Md. when convicted felon Marvin Cook broke into his house and then entered his bedroom. When Bozman awoke, Cook, armed with a gun, demanded money. Bozman retrieved a gun and fired at Cook, striking him several times and killing him.
Cook was previously convicted of attempted murder in 2002, but served only 5 ½ years of a 10-year sentence. Cpl. Mike Hill of the Baltimore County Police made it clear that Bozman will not be charged, stating, “Defending yourself is not against the law and that's exactly what this man did.”
