I didn't get that info from wikipedia. Don't remember exactly where I read most of it, but the hell does it matter anyway? People in the media lie all the time so frankly I don't know what to believe. Had also heard he was asleep when he was killed. If the robbers were attempting to injure his child and wife for literally no reason, then why didn't they after Taylor was killed and unable to defend them?
What would you do if two people you didn't know broke into your house while your wife and child were present? Would you ask them "Hey guys, are you here to just rob me or are you here to rob me AND kill my family?" What exactly would you do?
He was shot in the leg; the shot severed his femoral artery. That's not an injury you take while sleeping in your bed. The accepted theory is that he literally brought a knife to a gun fight because they think he went downstairs with a machete in hand and startled the robbers which caused them to shoot him. This info is freely available on the internet btw.
