Don’t Take A Crochet Hook To A Gun Fight

posted on September 2, 2016

When a man armed with a crochet hook tried to break into a Mountlake Terrace, Wash., home through a window, he got a rude awakening from a better-armed homeowner.

The intruder, who was dressed in black and had a female accomplice, barely made it through the window before he was shot by the occupant of the home. When police arrived, the wounded man was unresponsive and lying in the street. 

Police later caught the accomplice in a car the two had stolen earlier. The man remains hospitalized in critical condition.
