Police confirmed that the intruders beat Greer with their fists, body slammed him to the ground and tried to break into his safe.
But in a news conference Thursday, Long Beach Police Chief Jim McDonnell said the investigation is not over, and detectives will present their report to county prosecutors to determine if Greer was justified in slaying the woman.
Greer said that he was tackled and thrown to the ground but managed to get his .22-caliber revolver and confronted them as they ransacked a safe containing cash.
But when Greer produced a .22-caliber handgun, they fled. Greer told KNBC he chased the pair and shot Miller twice in the back in the alley, then pulled her body back onto his lot.
“I shot her anyway,” Greer said. “The lady didn’t run as fast as the man so I shot her in the back twice --she’s dead … but he got away.”

So your in the boat of all breaking and entering deserve the death penalty?
Would you want the ones that don't get shot by the home owner to be then killed by the court system?
These 2 had already shown that they were willing to do violence against the victim. So what would have stopped them from taking the gun from him and using it on him? Or coming back, to take it from his home and using it to commit other crimes?
The collarbone, the clavicle, is one of the easiest bones to break because of its role and its location. While it is possible to break it by a direct hit, it also can be broken by a transfer of shock. This means, if you fall hard on your shoulder or on an outstretched hand, the shock of the impact could travel along to the collarbone, breaking it.
