A Centennial, Colo., homeowner used his legally owned firearm to fight off an attacker at his home on Monday.

According to local media reports, Trevor Cecchettini was stabbing the tires of the boat in a homeowner’s driveway when the homeowner confronted him. Cecchettini then charged the homeowner, who ran back into the house and grabbed a gun.

Local police said Cecchettini then attempted to break down the door of the home, prompting the homeowner to shoot him twice. Cecchettini shot back, but the homeowner was uninjured.

Police arrested Cecchettini nearby on suspicion of illegal discharge of a firearm, felony menacing and drug possession.
