A homeowner in his late 60s living in San Bernardino, Calif. had just spent some time in his yard and came back inside his home to find an intruder armed with a hunting knife. The homeowner demanded that the man leave. When the trespasser refused to leave, the homeowner retrieved a handgun and again ordered the intruder out of the home. The intruder responded to the demand by brandishing the knife he was carrying, prompting the homeowner to shoot him.

Police captured the intruder and he was taken to the hospital. (The Sun, San Bernardino, Calif. 06/18/16, CBS Los Angeles, Los Angeles, Calif. 06/18/16)
