Self Defense Gun Use California Style
The shooting happened about 7:30 a.m. at the end of Sunset Drive, a semi-rural street on the east side of town.
The woman was about to take the couple's two Wheaton terrier dogs for a walk when the masked man jumped her outside her garage, police said. The woman struggled, broke away and ran screaming into the house, with the attacker in pursuit.
Her screams awoke her husband. The man, whom police identified only as a man in his 60s, "grabbed their handgun, probably a .357 ... and fired more than one shot," Police Chief Susan Jones said.
The intruder "had what looked like a firearm in his hand," Jones said. He died at the scene. His identity has not been released.
"The husband is fine. He's uninjured," Jones said. "The wife is being treated for a head injury that she sustained sometime during the struggle, but she's going to be fine." . . .
