Two burglars got more than they bargained for after the owner of the Vacaville home they allegedly broke into greeted them with a gun.
Around 8:20 a.m., Vacaville police dispatchers began receiving 911 calls reporting gunshots near the 100 block of Marna Drive, including a call from Jamie Aguirre, who said he had just shot an intruder in his home.
Aguirre, 38, “voluntarily disabled the weapon” and complied with officers as soon as they arrived, police said. He told officers three men had barged into his home and began threatening to assault him. Aguirre said he kept his distance and repeatedly told them to leave his home. Despite his pleas, one of the men, later identified as 21-year-old DeJohn Miller, moved in closer to Aguirre, who fired a single shot from a handgun at him, striking him in the lower stomach, police said.
The three men sped away from the area in a white Mercedes. Miller, who police said suffered a “non-life-threatening” gunshot wound that passed “through and through,” was dropped off at a local hospital, where he underwent surgery.
