Just another illustration on how things can go very wrong, very quickly.FAIRFIELD, Calif. -- An autopsy was scheduled for Monday on a Fairfield man who was shot Saturday night during an apparent home invasion robbery.
The Solano County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 48-year-old Timothy Banks.
Fairfield police said Banks was fatally shot and his 17-year-old son also was shot in their home in the 200 block of Holly Drive.
Lt. Al Bagos said Banks' wife called police around 11:34 p.m. Saturday. She said she awoke to find her husband and an intruder struggling over a rifle in the upstairs bedroom. The gun discharged, striking Banks in the head and torso and the intruder fled, Bagos said.
The teen was found shot downstairs and he was taken to the John Muir Medical Center in Walnut Creek, where he was in fair condition, Bagos said.
Police said it appears there were two intruders. One of them is a dark-skinned male approximately 17 years old who was wearing dark clothing, Bagos said. Police are investigating a motive for the shootings.
So, you are the wife in this scenario. You keep a loaded revolver beside the bed, and wake up to find your husband struggling with the BG.
How do you respond?
