Burglar With Taser Shot By Armed Homeowner

Paper beats rock. Rock beats scissors. Gun beats Taser. That’s the universal logic a home invader in Arizona learned the hard way.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office tells ABC-15 that just after 7 p.m. last Saturday, a burglar entered a Kingman residence armed with a Taser. Police say the suspect used the Taser on the homeowner multiple times as he rifled through the house.

However, the homeowner was able to grab his firearm and shoot the robber, who died from his injuries a short time later. Arizona’s Castle Doctrine law gives citizens the right to use deadly force against an intruder, and investigators say this shooting clearly falls under that legislation.
