Statistics are a Funny Thing

So was this an armed intruder or a family member. (Two for the price of one?) Homeowner fatally shoots family member breaking into home: The folks that love stats about people killing family members will ignore the fact that this was justified, and not an accident.
Deputies were told that an irate family member, Reed, armed with a gun was attempting to force entry into the home. Reed broke the glass from the back door in an apparent attempt to enter the home, deputies say, and was shot by the homeowner. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Cops are investigating, but they believe the shooting was justified. Just because you know someone, doesn't mean that they can't be a threat. Ask anyone who ever had a violent ex. In this case it looks like Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
