CLOVER, S.C. – A homeowner shot and killed an intruder this morning at a home in Clover. The incident happened in the 2900 block of W.

I think you can shoot to kill only under the circumstance that the alleged burglar happens to be armed and posed an immediate threat to yours or your family's life.

To those that dare to break into homes, doom on you.
I second the notion that if this happened more often, people would think twice before breaking into a house.
