Armed Georgia Homeowner Defends Family From Home Invaders

posted on April 11, 2017

At daybreak last Tuesday morning, two armed, masked men broke into a Canton, Ga., home and began terrorizing a couple and their tiny daughter. Fortunately, the homeowner also had a firearm.

Cherokee County police tell WSB-TV 2 the two intruders demanded the husband put his hands behind his back, but the homeowner pushed a dresser onto the suspects and grabbed his gun. Police say that after “a brief altercation and at least one shot fired by the suspects, the suspects fled the home.”

Deputies are unclear if either invader was hit by gunfire, but they are searching for Justin Pruitt in relation to the break-in. The wife, Mindy Lingerfelt, told reporters, “They knew my little girl was here … There’s actually a bullet hole through her window, and when I saw that, I hit my knees.” Multiple items were stolen, but one suspect dropped his gun, a duffel bag and duct tape while fleeing.
