Ohio Homeowner Fires Shot To Drive Off Burglary Suspect

A resident of Dayton, Ohio, told police that he heard a loud noise from his front door at around 4:30 a.m. The man, a concealed-carry permit holder, retrieved his pistol and fired a shot at an intruder, who reportedly entered his bedroom using a cell phone as a flashlight.

Reports from WDTN and WRGT indicate that a suspect or suspects fled, dropping a phone at the scene. 28-year-old Dawane Kelso was arrested later that morning, apparently after receiving treatment for a gunshot wound to the leg. According to an article from 2013 in the Dayton Daily News, Kelso was previously arrested for breaking and entering. He is currently being charged with burglary and aggravated burglary.
