    Man charged for firing at intruder BBQer

    ROY, Utah - A man fired six shots at a backyard intruder who was trying to light a barbecue grill, police said. "Way odd," Police Chief Greg Whinham said. Michael Wilder, 66, was charged with attempted homicide after chasing Kory Scott and shooting at him.

    "Nobody should wake up and find someone in their backyard doing anything, but the law's very specific that you can't use deadly force in that situation," Whinham said.

    Scott was not injured in the July 11 incident. He twice tried to run away when Wilder confronted him, according to court documents.

    "Stop or I'll shoot," the homeowner said, according to the documents.

    Wilder fired two shots, followed by four more, police said.

    A phone message left for Wilder was not immediately returned Tuesday.
