Armed Tennessee Homeowner Fights Off Intruder

posted on July 18, 2016

A Louisville, Tenn., homeowner on Friday used his firearm to stop two men who were trying to break into his house.

According to local media reports, a man, woman and child were in the house when two men tried to break in. The man grabbed his gun and shot one of the suspects, stopping the break-in. The wounded intruder was arrested and is expected to survive.

Neighbors said they believe the homeowner just did what he had to do to protect his home. "He's not dead. The house is protected. [The suspect] is incapacitated,” neighbor B.J. Lovins told WLKY.com. “I can't say anything negative about that. He was protecting his home, which he had every reason to believe that was going to be dangerous."
