Americans use such self-explanetory language ... once you learn the vocabulary
"battery, occupied burglary and resisting without violence": Assault, breaking in to a home and trying to escape without hitting a cop.
The owner/shooter is typical of US gun owners I know - they have the goods but not the skills.
"Mrs Land whipped out a .38 and fired three shots" implies she was carrying on her person - and a totally useless shot.
And Mr Land grabbed a 12-gauge (bore) shotgun - obviously he didn't care for either his furniture or the perpetrator. Guess people are a little more careful murdering people under the Stand Your Ground law since some people have been incarcerated after claiming that defence following the murder of Trevon.
