  1. The story leaves a lot out. I know the family and all details. Pischer was not just trying to break in. He was running around pounding on the outside of the house (house is in wooded area), screaming, trying to break into all the windows and doors he came to. He broke one of the windows and was basically terrorizing their poor son, who thought there was a group of people trying to get in. His son went out front to try to find out why “they” were trying to hurt him and told Pischer he had a gun. The intruder started screaming that he was going to kill him, picked up a large empty planter and charged his son. Keep in mind Pischer is 6’5” and out of his mind at that point. His son had no choice but to shoot him. It’s a sad story for both Pischer and his son who is now struggling with what he had to do.
