Late Monday afternoon, an Abbeville, S.C., man was in his residence when he suddenly found another man inside his home, threatening to kill him.
According to the Index-Journal, police responded to the report of a shooting and home invasion, finding the homeowner unharmed. Investigators say a man had simply walked into the residence while suffering hallucinations, and began telling the homeowner he would kill him. The homeowner grabbed his gun and told the man to leave several times, but the intruder kept advancing and kept threatening to kill him. That’s when the homeowner fired twice, hitting the man in the leg and sending him scrambling out the door.
A short time later, deputies found the man, 29-year-old Cody Brandon Driver, at a nearby medical center receiving treatment for a gunshot wound. He was taken into custody without incident.
