Two of the burglars, including one who was armed, were moving through the house when they encountered the homeowner, Shelton said. Gunfire was exchanged. The homeowner shot one of the burglars twice in the chest, and the homeowner's wife was shot in the abdomen. The wounded burglar left the house before collapsing and dying in the front yard. His name has not been released. The homeowner's wife was hospitalized but is expected to recover. The other two burglars ran from the house and were not located, Shelton said. They were described as black, in their late teens and wearing hooded sweatshirts and dark baggy pants. ========= 20 people? picked the wrong house to rob.
