PITTSBURGH — A retired Pittsburgh police officer interrupted a trio of burglars in his daughter's home yesterday, shot one to death and wounded a second as he waited for police to arrive.
Neighbors and a source close to the ongoing investigation said Darrell Benton, a former city patrolman, surprised the young men as they ransacked his daughter's home in the 6400 block of Apple Street in Lincoln-Lemington.
