Alabama Homeowner With A Gun Stops Intruder

posted on June 21, 2016

A suspected criminal in Hartford, Ala., picked the wrong home at which to attempt a late-night burglary. Police, responding to the home invasion, said a man was trying to enter the home through a window around 11:15 p.m. That’s when the homeowner fired a round, hitting the intruder in the chest before he could break into the residence.

Hartford Police Chief Annie Ward said an investigation is ongoing and charges are probably in store for the home invader, who was treated at a local hospital and then released. Ward told the Dothan Eagle, “I want the citizens of Hartford to know if they feel like their life or their family’s lives are in danger, then they have the right to protect themselves.”
