Waking to the sound of creaking floorboards made by a burglar early Thursday in his north Grand Forks house, Greg Kaml grabbed the revolver he keeps for such a time.


He confronted the stranger, who packed a pistol, hit him over the head with the gun butt, chased him outside and shot twice as the man ran away.

Kaml, 50, said he missed but "dented" the man's head with the gun butt.
