Alabama Homeowner Shoots Robber In Early Morning Confrontation

posted on June 10, 2017

Message to aspiring burglars: If you break into a home and hear the homeowner yell, “Get out, I’ve got a gun”—leave.

Timesdaily.com reports that a sleeping homeowner was roused around 3 a.m. on Tuesday by a strange noise. Taking his gun to investigate, he confronted a robber standing in the hallway. That’s when he shouted his warning to the invader.

Colbert County Sheriff Frank Williamson says, “Apparently, the robber told the homeowner he had a gun also, and they started exchanging gunfire.” Nearly a dozen shots were fired in total. “How the homeowner didn’t get shot, I don’t know,” Williamson added.

The intruder was hit, but managed to flee the house. The suspect and his girlfriend escaped into a wooded area, where a canine patrol located both individuals at daybreak. Authorities took the suspect into custody, along with his girlfriend and his 18-year-old son, who was waiting in a car during the incident.
