The resident grabbed his gun and confronted the intruder, whom he later described to police as a six-foot-tall white man with a large nose. Then the two men started fighting. The intruder got ahold of the gun.
Wright said that neither police nor the victim are quite sure what happened next. Maybe the intruder shot the resident on purpose. Maybe the gun went off accidentally while the men were wrestling for it.
It fired twice, striking the resident in the abdomen both times.
