Have to admit, this kind of bizarre. I believe California has the Castle Doctrine though.

Man enters wrong Foster City house, gets shot
24-year-old South San Francisco man is in the intensive care unit after he allegedly tried entering the wrong Foster City house after a night of drinking and a visitor at the home mistook him for an intruder and shot him, police said.
Authorities believe the 24-year-old thought the house on the 600 block of Crane Avenue was his friend’s home when he went inside at about 4:20 a.m. Sunday.
A visitor at the house heard the man lurking outside and then enter the home. Capt. Jon Froomin said the visitor then fired two or three shots at the man with a gun that was not registered to him.
Police arrested neither the shooter nor the man, but passed the information on to the district attorney’s office to make a charging decision.
