The intruder, who was armed with a pistol, demanded money from the victim. When she told him there was no money in the house, he threatened to kill her and took her late husband’s 12 gauge shotgun from a gun cabinet in the bedroom. As he was getting the shotgun, she attempted to flee the bedroom, at which time he struck her in the back of the head with the pistol, causing an injury which required medical treatment. At that time he fled the residence.
