Crockett County “Gun Enthusiasts” Thwart Violent Home Invasion

Two Crockett County, Tenn., homeowners were startled when two armed men kicked in their door and began opening fire around 11 p.m. Tuesday night. It was immediately made clear to them, however, that they had chosen the wrong house. According to the Crockett County Sheriff’s Department, the two homeowners are “gun enthusiasts,” and quickly turned the tables on the two, firing back shots of their own. The two armed intruders promptly fled. 

Investigators say the homeowners were unharmed. The condition of the assailants is unknown, as they remain at large.

“At this time we’re unsure if anybody was hit or not. … We got word out to the hospital that if anybody comes in with gunshot wounds, we’re still waiting to hear anything about that,” Captain Jordan Spraggins of the Crockett County Sheriff’s Dept. told WBBJ 7.
