Elderly Man Shoots Intruder, Stops Violent Home Invasion

posted on July 23, 2016

The San Antonio Police Department has commended the actions of a man in his late 70s during a recent home break-in. Once they became aware of the break-in, the homeowner and his wife called police to say someone was forcing their way into the house. SAPD spokesperson Douglas Greene told mySanAntonio.com that the elderly man pleaded with attacker to stop, but the invader stormed the home ferociously enough to break the door handle. That’s when the homeowner had no other choice than to defend his life, his wife and his property. He fired his gun, hitting the man in the chest.

EMS technicians attempted to save the life of the would-be intruder, who was in his 40s, but he was pronounced dead at the scene. As of Thursday the suspect was not identified, but SAPD believe a car near the home belonged to the intruder and have taken it for evidence.
