Ignoring the Guy with the Shotgun Can Get you Killed

This guy is lucky to be alive. Burglary suspect shot by homeowner in Atlanta: CBS Atlanta

If you break into enough houses, you will eventually find an armed homeowner. This one had a shotgun, and a security alarm system, which is what alerted him to trouble.
Police said as he approached the top of the steps, he saw 25-year-old William Leisy, Jr. coming up the steps towards him and his family.

The homeowner told him to get out of his house.

Police said Leisy kept advancing towards the homeowner, so he fired a warning shot into the floor in front of him. Leisy paused then started coming further up the steps.

The homeowner fired another shot at Leisy's leg and he fell onto the steps.
Maybe I'm mean, but I would have shot him center-of-mass.

The bad guy is in stable condition and charged with burglary.
