Armed Senior Citizen Thwarts Attempted Robbery

posted on September 24, 2015

A man shot and critically wounded a suspect who was trying to break into his home Tuesday morning in Phoenix. Phoenix police say that the incident occurred around 10:20 a.m. The homeowner, a man in his 60s, was home alone when he heard someone in his back yard and then glass breaking. He saw the suspect, around 17 to 20 years old, trying to enter through a window. The homeowner reportedly warned the suspect that he was armed and went to get his handgun. When he returned, the suspect was still trying to get in the house. 

“The homeowner reported perceiving a threat and fired at the subject, striking him,” police said in a statement. The suspect then tried to flee down an alley but collapsed several houses down, where emergency personnel found him. Paramedics treated the man and took him to a hospital in extremely critical condition. He is not expected to survive.
