Police were dispatched to a residence in the 6700 block of Fortune Road shortly before 3:30 a.m. A woman, who said she was alone in the house, told officers that she was awakened by her doorbell ringing and called 911, police said. Before officers arrived, a man had entered the house, and she shot him.

“Dial 911” and die.
It’s clear that the police, thru no fault of theirs. can’t be everywhere to PREVENT crime.
Everyone has to provide for their own defense. And, they have imho an affirmative duty to do so.
“Victim disarmament is the view that it is somehow better to see a woman raped in an alley and strangled with her own pantyhose, than see her with a gun in her hand.” — T.D. Melrose
Personally, I’m sad that there was a death. And, there’s no explanation as to why? Drunk, criminal intent, or blunder.
But whatever the reason, you can’t fault the woman. In fact, she deserves applause for defending herself.
RKBA is all about protecting yourself and your family from criminals and Gooferment.
