A homeowner in Licking, Mo., gave an aggressive intruder the licking of his life late Wednesday evening.
Texas County, Mo., Sheriff James Sigman told local media that the 34-year-old owner of the residence heard someone attempting to break into the house. After being discovered, the suspect began cursing and trying to challenge the homeowner as he forced his way inside. That’s when the homeowner fired one well-placed shot from his pistol, driving off the invader.
Shortly after the encounter, Licking Police responded to a nearby ambulance base, where a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen had checked in. Investigators determined it was the home invader, and he was transported to Texas County Memorial Hospital. Sigman concluded, “After investigating the scene and questioning witnesses, it was determined that this shooting was an act of self-defense.”
