“The homeowner gave him a warning. The suspect continued to approach him, at which time the homeowner fired one shot.”
DeKalb County Police Lt. Lonzy Robertson tells WSB-TV 2 that a homeowner had no choice but to fire at a suspected burglar. At around 2 a.m. last Monday, a man—who was dressed as a woman, wearing a wig and arched eyebrows—broke into the Lithonia, Ga., residence and, despite warnings, continued to advance. The homeowner then fired a single shot, fatally striking the intruder.
Investigators say it was a clear case of self-defense, and neighbors interviewed at the scene believe the owner of the house had no other choice. William Jordan, who lives nearby, said the homeowner has a house full of females and he is intensely serious about their safety. “I think people should protect themselves and their property,” he said.
