AL: Homeowner shoots intruder

An 81 year old homeowner and his wife were awakened by an intruder in Alabama. The homeowner took a pistol from his bedside table and pointed it at the intruder. The intruder told him to put the gun down. Said homeowner shot him instead. By the time the police arrived the wife had armed herself with a shotgun. The intruder did not survive the encounter. The matter will be presented to the grand jury but the investigating sheriff considers it pro forma and expects it to go no further. The homeowner shouldn't have to go through the hassel of the grand jury but on the whole it's a positive outcome.
