"Hobbs police say Wallace Roberson, 43, tried to break into a home on the 1100 block of North Denson Street in Hobbs. The homeowner Watson Green, 70, immediately called police, grabbed his handgun and fired a single shot through the back door. The single shot went through Green's back door hitting Roberson. When paramedics arrived they found him bleeding in an alley. He died from his injuries. Roberson was arrested two weeks ago for burglary. He also has prior convictions for aggravated assault and battery dating back to 2007." (02/23/11)
