Hartford Homeowner Thwarts Home Invasion

posted on September 10, 2015

Police in Hartford, Conn., received reports of shots being fired in connection with a home invasion in progress just before 11 p.m. When officers arrived they were told that the two suspects had approached the homeowner and pointed a gun at him.

The homeowner, who is a legal pistol permit holder, was armed at the time and used his firearm to shoot the suspects several times. Both suspects were taken to a local hospital, where they are listed in critical but stable condition. Officers also located a gun and zip-ties on the suspects, indicating a premeditated intention to enter the house while people were present and likely do much harm.

The homeowner, who has not been charged, suffered minor injuries during the incident. A woman and child also at the residence were uninjured. Surveillance cameras at the home were able to capture video of the incident, which is being reviewed as part of the police investigation.
