More on Cooperation Burglar killed; homeowner hurt He cooperated. When he realized that the result of his cooperation was that he was going to be shot in the back of the head, he abandoned that strategy and began fighting for his life.
Reno police Sgt. Ray Leal said a resident in the 400 block of Brittany Avenue was confronted by the gunman when he arrived at home about 1:35 p.m. The burglar, a 43-year-old Reno man whose name was withheld, ordered the resident to crawl to the bathroom at the end of the hall and remain there while he resumed the burglary.

After a short time, the burglar placed a gun to the resident's head. The man told police he believed he was about to be shot and turned his head as the gun discharged.
He managed to wrestle the gun away from the bad guy, and shoot him. Not before being injured.

One dead home invader. One live homeowner, treated for two non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
