Already on edge following a burglary that occurred just days prior, Omar Medina was awakened by loud noises coming from somewhere inside his home. He quickly retrieved his handgun and stepped out into the hallway.
An intruder was in the living room. Medina fired three shots. The intruder grunted loudly, ran out the door, collapsed and died.
Police say the man had an extensive criminal record and was a suspect in other burglaries.
