Imagine waking up at 1:00am to find a naked man in your home trying to drown your 11-year-old grandson in the bathtub. What do you do?

You grab your gun and shoot the naked intruder while someone else in the house calls 911 for help.

That’s what happened early Monday morning in Aurora, Colorado, a suburb of Denver. When police arrived, they entered the house, saw a man with a gun, so they shot and killed him. Upon searching the home, they found the intruder, dead, in the bathroom and the 11-year-old grandson seriously injured, but he is expected to survive.

(Bearing Arms) – An Aurora man reportedly fending off an attacker inside his home and then shot by police arriving on the scene was a decorated Vietnam vet, family members have revealed to Denver TV stations.

An attorney for the family told Channel 7 news in Denver that police shot to death Richard Black, Jr. after they entered the house during a chaotic scene.

The incident started around 1:30 a.m. Monday when police received multiple calls about a break in at a home near Iola Street and East Montview Boulevard.

Police said when they arrived the scene was “chaotic and violent” and officers heard gunshots from inside the home at 10609 E. Montview Blvd.

Officers then encountered an armed man and an officer shot the man, killing him, police said.

Details of exactly what happened have not been released, but this needs to be a warning for all homeowners faced with an intruder. If you shoot the intruder and they are incapacitated, put your gun down BEFORE police arrive. Responding police don’t know who you are, but if they see with a gun, you will be perceived as a threat and dealt with accordingly.
