DETROIT -- A Wayne County sheriff's deputy shot and killed a man breaking into her west side home early Friday, Detroit police said.

The 38-year-old deputy, who works in the Wayne County Jail, was in her bedroom in the 18400 block of Woodingham near Curtis around 7 a.m. when she heard a sound coming from an upstairs window. She investigated and told police she saw someone attempting to break into her home.

Wayne County Sheriff's Deputy Chief Ralph Kinney said the deputy has been with the department for 14 years. He would not release her name pending completion of the Detroit police investigation. The dead man's name also was withheld. Note: The reporter who gave the original story a title involving a "deputy" killing a home break-in prepetrator may think the fact that she was a deputy made the difference. We, on the other hand, hold that it was the GUN the ended the bad guy's day -- not her badge or job title.
