Pennsylvania Homeowner Exchanges Gunfire With Intruders

A man residing in Oley Township, Pa., told police that he awoke to the sight of an unfamiliar man pointing a gun at him. Fortunately, the homeowner was a gun owner; he quickly retrieved his firearm and began firing at the intruder, chasing him down the stairs toward the entrance. He then saw another man at the foot of the stairs, also brandishing a gun in his direction.

In the ensuing exchange of gunfire, both suspects were hit and fled the premises. They were later dropped off at a local hospital and are being charged by authorities, along with one of two alleged accomplices. The homeowner was shot in the leg; he has already been treated and released from the hospital.
