CO: Homeowner shoots mom's crazed ex-boyfriend: "A domestic dispute Sunday evening left a Moffat County man dead, shot in the chest by his ex-girlfriend's son in an incident police say was justifiable self-defense. Craig Police say Mario Vigil, 60, of Moffat County, broke into a home in the 800 block of Washington Street armed with a .30-30-caliber rifle. The homeowner, whose name has not been released, grabbed a shotgun, shot Vigil once in the chest, and hid in a bedroom with his 9-year-old son, according to a statement from police. The gunshot wounded Vigil but did not stop him, according to police. Vigil shot through the door of the room the homeowner was hiding in and tried to break down the door, according to police. The homeowner grabbed another gun, a .30-06-caliber rifle, and shot Vigil through the door, striking him in the hip, according to police. When police arrived, they found Vigil dead, lying on the floor outside the bedroom, according to the statement. The homeowner and his son were still hiding in the bedroom, according to police."
