Alabama Homeowner Fatally Shoots Invader, Second Man On The Run

posted on April 7, 2017

Tuesday morning, a Baileyton, Ala., homeowner stood his ground when encountering an armed intruder. Now, the invader is dead and Cullman County Sheriff’s investigators are on the hunt for his accomplice. 

The Cullman Times is reporting the homeowner awoke to the sound of someone breaking in. As he investigated, the resident encountered 34-year-old Johnathan Andrew Smith—who was carrying a gun. According to Sheriff Matt Gentry, “An altercation ensued between that individual and the resident, who was also armed. Shots were fired, and the man who had entered the house was shot.” At that point, Smith fled to a getaway vehicle driven by a second man. 

Police found the car a short time later, abandoned on the side of the highway. Smith was found dead inside the car, and an extensive search has been launched for the second suspect, who remains at large. Investigators believe the incident is not random and that the homeowner was specifically targeted for assault or robbery.
