More on Apple Valley Shootingy, CA: Burglar refused Command, Reached for Waistband
After a brief struggle, the homeowner had the suspect at gunpoint, but the suspect "refused to comply with repeated commands to show his hands and lay on the ground," officials said in a news release.
When the suspect reached into his waistband, the homeowner opened fire.
A neighbor said the confrontation did not happen inside the home.
"He did wake up and he found some stuff missing. He actually confronted the guy that broke in. He was pushing his motorcycle," said neighbor Jamie Valenzuela. "I guess he got him to go back to the house and return his motorcycle, and on the way back, he noticed that he had his other gun."
