Elderly Couple Fight Off, And Fatally Shoot, Home Invader

posted on May 16, 2017

When a Louisiana man broke into an elderly couple’s residence, he most likely didn’t anticipate one surprising circumstance—that one of the senior citizens might be armed.

The Ouachita Parish Sheriff’s Office says the suspect entered the home in Swartz, La., late Sunday afternoon and refused to leave—ultimately threatening the lives of the husband and wife who lived there. Luckily, one of the occupants managed to pull a firearm and shoot the violent intruder, who was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.

While the OPSO is withholding the name of the couple, no charges are expected to be filed in the self-defense shooting.
