Lubbock Homeowner Stands Ground, Shoots Knife-Wielding Invader

posted on September 22, 2016

In the latest example of why it’s ill-advised to bring a knife to a gun fight, a Lubbock homeowner ended a home invasion with a well-placed shot.

Monday evening, police responded to a home on a tranquil Lubbock main street after receiving a call from a man saying someone was trying to rob him. Officers discovered the suspect had entered the house and threatened the resident with a knife—causing the homeowner to shoot the man, stopping him in his tracks. 

Emergency responders took the suspect to University Medical, but investigators have not released his name or condition. Many were caught off guard in the quiet neighborhood. “I mean, it's crazy,” said neighbor Warren Shepard. “Some dude got shot because he was trying to rob someone, which is just bonkers because usually you just hear about that stuff on the news, but it's happening right here in front of us.”
