As reported, Robert Wilkins, Deputy Fire Chief of Philadelphia, is said to have shot a female home invader in self defense:

Police say that just after Noon on Thursday, Wilkins was asleep in his home when he awoke to the sound of an intruder forcing open his front door.  Wilkins reportedly grabbed his gun and went to investigate, where he found an unidentified female home invader and fired 3 shots in self defense.  The intruder was transported to a local hospital, where she was listed in critical condition, according to police.  The district attorney’s office is said to be reviewing possible charges against the woman, and Wilkins was reportedly unharmed.

This is yet another successful example of armed self defense, which occurs about 2.5 million times each year in the USA. Had this man not been armed, he could have been harmed by the home invader, as happens all too often. Fortunately, he was armed, and as a result survived unharmed.

    Why do I get the feeling that if it had been me, a nobody who shot a female intruder in my home at noon I would have been arrested.
