"It's pretty tough, but you know what, we're managing, we've got to get there and help Ange and the grandkids".

Local Sheriff Troy Nehls said it's a tragedy.

Police said Mr Estorffe woke up to the sound of glass breaking and got out of bed to investigate, which is when he came face-to-face with the intruders who shot him.
