    snippet:

    A man shot and killed a burglar in White Center overnight after he awoke to find the intruder inside his home, police said.

    The homeowner reported the burglary at his home in the 9800 block of 13th Ave. SW at about 2:45 a.m. after hearing glass breaking downstairs, according to the King County Sheriff's Office. He called 911 immediately and as he was trying to talk with the dispatcher and hide from the potential danger, he heard someone coming upstairs. Soon after that, shots were fired.

    Police and medics arrived to find the intruder dead at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

    The homeowner thought there might have been multiple people inside the home, but investigators have note been able to find anyone else associated with the crime yet.

    Never really pleased with someone dies but with that said :
    As a general rule , if you don't want to get shot or run the risk of getting shot...don't go around burglarizing peoples houses.

    And yet more, and more people who are under-educated vote in people that do argue with that.

    Hopefully, we can help educate them.

    Some might refer to this as, “a happy ending”
