Connecticut Homeowner Shoots Intruder Who Burst Through Front Door

posted on January 18, 2017

“When I get my pay and I get my stuff, I don’t want you to come and steal it ’cause I’m going to shoot you …” That’s what Jamaican-born Walden Bunting told WTNH News 8 in New Haven—and unfortunately, that’s exactly what Bunting was forced to do when an intruder pounded on, then kicked in the front door of his home.

Detectives say that Bunting’s neighbor Jorge Ortiz broke into the house around 3:30 a.m. Bunting confronted him, then grabbed his legally registered firearm and shot Ortiz in self-defense. When officers arrived, they found Ortiz laying on the ground and nursing a gunshot wound. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of a non-life threatening injury, and is currently listed in stable condition. After learning of the incident, another neighbor, Vanessa Adams, added, “I keep my phone on me all the time just so I could call 911, and keep the doors locked and windows closed.”
