Virginia Shank of the Tribune Chronicle writes:

"I just shot through my door with a gun," a Niles man told a police dispatcher last month.

Based on a 911 recording of the conversation between Roy Hahn and that dispatcher, the 40-year-old man didn't seem to realize at the time that the shotgun blast he fired through his front door had killed one of the people trying to break in and wounded another.


The shooting is among several examples of deadly force, locally and nationally, that have made headlines as prosecutors confront self-defense cases in the form of Ohio Castle Doctrine, stand-your-ground or "no duty to retreat" laws.
