Home Invader Shot In Sharpsville, Pa.

posted on June 19, 2015

A Sharpsville, Pa., woman and her boyfriend were relaxing at home just before midnight on Monday when the woman’s estranged husband, 36-year-old Nick Ference, forced his way inside the house. When Ference found the woman’s boyfriend, he threatened to kill him, prompting the boyfriend to flee. After Ference cornered the man in the basement of the home, the man pulled out his legally registered firearm and fired at Ference, striking him in the chest before dialing 911.

According to Sharpsville police, there were also three children in the home at the time of the incident, but no one else, including the armed citizen, was hurt. Ference’s estranged wife had reportedly taken out a protective order against Ference earlier this year, but cancelled it the following week.
