December 6, 1985

ARVADA, Colo. (AP) _ No charges are expected against a man who shot and critically wounded an intruder in his home, which had a bullet-riddled target and a grim warning on its front door, police said.

″It looks at this point like an interrupted burglary - definitely a stranger-to-stranger″ confrontation, said Sgt. Roger Rountree.

Gerald E. Steele, 22, who shot the alleged intruder with a .357-caliber Magnum pistol Tuesday, was released after questioning, Rountree said.

In addition to the riddled target silhouette, Steele’s front door carried the warning, ″We’re insured by Smith & Wesson,″ the gun manufacturer.

Eugene Robert Clark, 25, remained hospitalized in critical condition with a head wound Thursday at Lutheran Medical Center, officials said.
