A Skyway woman returned home to find her front door kicked in. Fearing to enter, she called her husband to come home from work to investigate the matter. The husband was leaving the home after briefly checking the interior when a next-door neighbor, with whom the couple had experienced problems, advanced on him in a threatening manner with a hammer. When the neighbor refused orders to drop the hammer and continued his advance, the husband shot him once, hitting him in the abdomen and stopping the attack. Police said that the attacker will be charged with assault and residential burglary on his release from the hospital and that the resident shot in self-defense.
