    A man was shot and killed Thursday after an East Side homeowner awoke to noise by his front door and found the man inside his house, opening the door for another person, police said.

    The homeowner had just hours earlier returned to his house on the 800 block of North Pine Street after a trip to the Hill Country.

    His house had been burglarized earlier that day, Sgt. Dave Berrigan said. He was with his wife in their bedroom, their 1-year-old son in another room, when around 10:30 p.m. he heard a scuffle and grabbed the shotgun lying next to his bed, Berrigan said.

    The homeowner saw the man in his hallway and shot at him twice.

    The man ran outside and collapsed a few houses down. He was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he later died.

    Police detained several people, including some witnesses and two men who may have been involved in the burglary attempt.

    The homeowner will likely not face charges, Berrigan said, adding, "He was protecting his property and his family. What are you going to do?"

    Makes you chuckle a little when people talk about "stopping power" and 9mm not being enough and that only .40 and up is a "man stopper" when a guy takes presumably 2 hits from a shotgun and keeps going for a while.
