Kathy Waller said she and her husband, Jerry, noticed bright lights from outside their bedroom window at about 1 a.m. Tuesday.
He grabbed a .38-caliber pistol and went outside to see what was going on.
"He probably thought it was a group of yuckos out there or something messing around," she said.
It was police responding to a burglar alarm, which wasn't at their house, but across the street.
"I'm just curious as hell how it happened," she said. "I heard he was shot six times in the chest by a Glock, I guess, or whatever the police use. I'm disgusted."
Kathy Waller said she would like more answers from police.
"Married 46 years and somebody gets a little trigger happy and away they go, you know," she said.
It was unclear why the officers were behind the Waller home because the call was at a neighbor's directly across the street.

Living that much of a life to be riddled with bullet holes, dead, on your own property... This is disgusting, we need reform, or a revolution.

Oh wait... it wasn't a gun free zone...
If only this man had had a gun, he could have defended himself and prevented this unnecessary death!
Oh wait... he did have a gun...
Gee, looks like the usual slogans aren't working.

I hate to say it but would this guy have been shot if he hadn't gone out there with a gun in his hand? It's easy enough to blame the cops but if you were in their position searching an area for a suspected burglar and you suddenly came across a man with a gun in his hand, what would you do?
