Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0 - Man fatally shot east of Albuquerque. A call to 911 was possible before the break-in, but deputies still arrived after everything was over.
ALBUQUERQUE (AP) - Authorities say a man was fatally shot after he broke into a home east of Albuquerque and threatened the homeowner.
There is video (this story is from a TV news site), but it doesn't add much.

If the homeowner had not been able to defend himself, whose dead body would the deputies have been removing from the scene? Perhaps no one would have died, but I think that there is a pretty good chance the homeowner would have been injured or killed. Someone breaking into your home and threatening you is a reasonable threat.
