Based upon what has been reported, it sounds as if everything was "righteous." I am glad that no good guys were injured.

Just saw this on the news. Heres another news channel's story:
May want to change the title to "OR home."

Another head shot! Looks like the combat marksmanship of the average citizen is improving.

there seems to be a rash of dudes in their 70s getting the better of BGs in their 20s. 2 former Marines - one outboxed the bad guys and one outshot 2 bad dudes with one KIA from a headshot. now this. I think i will be lucky to be able to see my gunsights at 70. In any case, good shooting on the part of the good guys. yut.

According to the Saturday Oregonian newspaper:
News reports being what they are, early in the game, it's not clear to me whether everyone will see this as justified.
'... Janice Hudson called 9-1-1 to report an intruder. Leroy Hudson opened the back door of the house and found a man standing in front of him. He demanded to know what the man was doing, hoping to scare him off.
But the man said nothing. Instead, he walked toward Leroy Hudson, and Hudson raised the gun and shot him. Police arrived soon after.
Police then found the man lying on the back porch amid signs of forced entry. The intruder was not armed.'
Problem #1: He opened the door at 4:50am to someone standing on the back porch. 4:50am to an unknown person. Opening the door to anyone in the middle of the night is bad juju, however it ends up.
Problem #2: At least according to the news story, the stranger then walked toward the homeowner, at which point he raised his gun and shot him in the head. No mention of lethal threat, aggression, though the article indicates (a) the stranger was unarmed and that (b) there were signs of forced entry. Everything will depend on what the homeowner thought/knew at the time. Likely, he knew full well someone was attempting to gain entry forcibly, saw the guy's face/eyes and read the manifest intent for what it was.
Unknown whether the stranger though he was at the wrong house, or whether he was clear-headed and a criminal attempting to break in.
Predictably, at least one officer was quoted as reminding citizens of the risks of keeping firearms at home, which can easily be taken and turned on them by criminals.
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
