Armed Oregon Man Fights Off Intruder During Break-In

posted on June 2, 2016

In an episode relived over and over several times daily throughout the nation—and that anti-gun politicians and the media claim seldom happens—an apartment resident in Salem, Ore., used his legally owned firearm on Tuesday to stop a man who had broken into his apartment.

According to local media reports, the armed man forced his way into the apartment at about 4:25 a.m. on Tuesday. One of the apartment’s occupants retrieved his gun and fired at the suspect, causing the intruder to flee. 

Police are uncertain if the suspect, who they are still looking for, was wounded in the home-defense shooting.
