    GOOD result, poor execution:

    Two teens break into home, start beating homeowner with "bats and clubs." Homeowner's girlfriend uses shotgun to "beat" off the attackers. But, the shotty went off, and that ended it... One BG wounded, both apprehended.

    Kingman, AZ.

    I think I'd have used the shotgun properly... and ended it a bit sooner...
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    Upon forcing themselves into the home, the buck shot should have started flying.
    Too bad she wounded her boyfriend, too.

    Hopefully the girlfriend furthers her relationship with that shotgun for future threats.

    Well when pointed in the general area, a shotgun should hit its inteded target and everything else in that area. Hence SCATTER GUN. Sorry bf, but hey you're still alive!
