Armed Nebraska Man Stops Invasion

posted on August 8, 2016

A Nebraska man, who was house-sitting for an acquaintance, used his firearm to stop a home invasion early Saturday morning. 

According to local media reports, the man and woman who were house-sitting were awakened about 2:15 a.m. to the sound of an intruder in the home. 

When the intruder began kicking down the bedroom door, the man shot the intruder, who, it was later learned, was an ex-boyfriend of the homeowner. 

The intruder fled but was found nearby. Local police said he was taken to a nearby medical provider, where he is expected to survive. Charges are pending.
