    A Reno man was wounded as he disarmed a burglar in his home and fatally shot the intruder Monday afternoon,

    police said.

    Reno police Sgt. Ray Leal said a resident in the 400 block of Brittany Avenue was confronted by the gunman when he arrived at home about

    1:35 p.m. The burglar, a

    43-year-old Reno man whose name was withheld, ordered the resident to crawl to the bathroom at the end of the hall and remain there while he resumed the burglary.

    After a short time, the burglar placed a gun to the resident's head. The man told police he believed he was about to be shot and turned his head as the gun discharged.

    He then jumped to his feet and struggled with the suspect for the gun, sustaining two gunshots to his upper body, but managed to wrestle the gun from the intruder and shoot him.

    The resident was treated at Renown Regional Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries.

    "I don't believe the two men knew each other," Leal said at the scene.

    Good god... what a lucky SOB.

    But why wait for the guy to have you on the floor with a gun to your head before you start think... "Humm, this guy may kill me, maybe I should fight"

    Still, I'm glade it turned out the way it did.

    Wow. Hope he recovers OK and stops at the gunshop to buy his own on the way home from the hospital. I hate having to borrow other peoples' stuff.

    Wow that was luck
    A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

    Three shots and he has non life threatening injuries to the upper-body. Wonder what the caliber was and where else he was shot. Anyway he had a one shot-one kill. Thats what I call Gun Control.

    Whatever caliber it was, is was enough to get 'er done on one idiot who was kind enough to have himself removed from the gene pool... Just goes to show how true p95 signature is...

    Great job by the GG but... I hope he realized he would have been much better off if he had been armed in the first place!
