California Resident Shoots Home Invader

posted on January 5, 2016

An attempted home invasion in Seaside, Calif., turned out badly for the suspected perpetrator. The Monterey Herald reports that a man tried to forcibly gain entry to a home in the Marshall Park neighborhood. Two men were already inside the house, one of whom engaged in a struggle with the suspect while the other retrieved a firearm. When the suspect apparently tried to take the gun, he was shot once in the torso. 

Police arrived to find the suspect unconscious; he was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. Police told local media that the gun appeared to be legally owned and that the resident who fired it is not suspected of a crime.
