Those were the words a Parkville County, Md., homeowner heard in the middle of the night, as an intruder broke into his residence. The Baltimore Sun quotes police Cpl. John Wachter on what happened next: “The man armed himself with a gun and closed the door to the room he was in. The suspect kicks in that door. The man, fearing for his life, shoots the suspect several times.”
The victim ran from the house to seek help, then waited for the police to arrive. Officers entered the home and found the suspect, who was then transported to a local hospital for injuries that did not appear to be life-threatening. The police still have no reason why the intruder kicked in the door and started yelling. “There’s no indication that they knew each other,” Wachter added.
