    GOOD: Don't Bring A Boxcutter To A Gunfight - Aurora, CO

    Intruder shot to death during attack in home - The Denver Post

    A man armed with a box cutter pushed his way into an Aurora home early Friday morning and attacked a male guest who was sleeping on the couch before the intruder was shot to death by the man who lived there, police said.

    The alleged attacker, who has not been identified, knocked on the back door of a single-family house at 1672 Jamaica St. around 3 a.m. The man who lived in the house went to the door but was pushed aside by the intruder, police said.

    After a brief scuffle, the intruder went into the living room where Frank J. Sanchez, 18, was sleeping. The intruder began attacking Sanchez, who woke up and started fighting back, Detective Shannon Lucy said.

    Meanwhile, the resident went into his bedroom, pulled out a pistol and shot the intruder dead, according to police.

    "We don't consider this a random burglary or robbery," Lucy said Friday afternoon. She didn't identify the resident of the house, who is not considered a suspect in a crime and was not taken into custody, she said.

    Sanchez, wanted on an outstanding burglary warrant in Kansas City, Kan., was arrested.

    Lucy said the Adams County district attorney's office is investigating the shooting and whether it might fall under Colorado's "Make My Day" law, which allows homeowners or residents to defend themselves against intrusions.

    Anyone with information about the incident should call Detective Craig Appel at 303-739-6207.

    Sounds like Sanchez had an enemy,maybe he ripped the guy off and the guy was gonna cut him up,this sounds like a situation where you shouldn't take the law into your own hands,you may get shot

    There's no "whether"; it does.

    What a moron the resident was to open the door to a stranger at any time, much less 03:00.

    Maybe he didn't know that his guest was wanted for burglary... but I'd say that's a pretty big "maybe." And ditto on exercising more caution when there's a knock on the door at 3am.

    Nevertheless, the intruder got what he deserved.

    Yet another person answering an unexpected unknown intent unknown person door knock at _3AM_ only to find himself face to face with Death's Head.

    What is with people answering knocks, bashes, kicks, and persons screaming at their prior _closed and locked_ door?!
    And at 3AM too...an hour where almost nothing good ever occurs.

    "The man who lived in the house went to the door but was pushed aside by the intruder, police said"

    No surprise there. Duh.
    Do not do this. Stop doing this people.
    Identify who is at the door _through_ the door by speaking to them through the closed door. You can hear them fine and they can hear you. Seeing persons eye to eye is not necessary to communicate functionally.

    Why do I get the feeling that the homeowner recognized the intruder...?

    Strange indeed, but the result is good: 2 BG down, one for good

    knocked on the back door ...

    Story after story after story ... there must be a reason that so many criminals choose to knock on the door instead of just cutting the screen and entering discreetly. Seems like every story I read they knock and attack you when you open the door.

    Question: why would a criminal knock on the door of the victim's house?

    Tell me about it. This reminds me of a time when I was in basic training. It was my turn for the 2am (or so) watch. I'm not a good person at waking up and the guy I was relieving ditched his uniform and crawled into the sack before I was dressed and awake.

    Suddenly there was a knock at the door. Instead of opening the window and asking for identification, I opened the door half asleep. Let me tell you, I wasn't half asleep much longer and neither were the 60 or so guys in the barracks because when that drill instructor layed into me he woke up the whole building, the next building over, and maybe a few dead people burried at the base cemetary.

    Fortunately, I notified my drill instructor first thing the next morning that one of the other drill instructors would be looking for her to let her know how I screwed up. I never heard another word about it.
