Connecticut Homeowner Shoots Home Invaders

A Hartford, Conn., man with a licensed handgun got the better of two home invasion suspects. The homeowner was returning to his house late one night. As he walked to the door, he was approached by two strangers, one of whom had a gun. The bad guys forced the man to open the door. After all three got inside, a struggle ensued, according to police Sgt. Reginald Early. During the scuffle, the homeowner grabbed his firearm from where it was stored and shot both suspects. One was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital; the other arrived at the medical facility on his own. Police said the resident won’t be charged as he was protecting himself and his family.
