A 77-year-old man in Miami-Dade County, Fla., was in the shower when he reportedly heard unexpected noises in his house. He went to investigate and encountered two men who appeared to be burglarizing the home. The homeowner opened fire, killing one of the intruders and wounding a second, who was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

A neighbor reported that burglaries were common in the neighborhood and that the homeowner in question had been robbed before. “I think he’s 100 percent correct,” she said of his actions.
