Baseball Bat-Swinging Intruder Loses Fight To Homeowner With Gun

In Ohio, Coshocton County officers responded to a call reporting gunshots fired in a quiet neighborhood shortly after midnight. They discovered two individuals had kicked in the door of a home and attacked one of the residents with a baseball bat. They also found the homeowner safe, as he had fought back with a firearm. 

Sheriff Tim Rogers told reporters that a male residing at the home fired several times at the intruders. And while it was initially thought no one had been hit, further investigation revealed suspect Richard Kafel had, in fact, been shot twice. He was taken to Coshocton Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and was also taken into custody. Two other suspects, Jeremiah Brock and Kylie Bliss Brown, were also arrested and charged with aggravated burglary. A fourth suspect is still at large.
