Maryland Homeowner Uses Gun To Stop Two Home Invaders

When a Montgomery County, Md., man heard strange sounds coming from his basement at approximately 2 a.m. Saturday, he suspected he was not alone. So, when he went to the basement to check it out, he also took his firearm.

According to a police report obtained by WBFF Fox 45, “He encountered two unknown suspects in the basement of his home. One of the suspects threatened to kill the homeowner. The homeowner discharged a firearm twice at that suspect, and apparently struck him with one of the rounds.”

When officers arrived, they discovered the wounded 19-year-old home intruder in the back yard. He was quickly transported to a nearby hospital and treated for life-threatening injuries. The second suspect remains at large, and investigators say his description “remains unconfirmed.”
