Home Invaders Stopped Cold By Armed Homeowner

posted on February 15, 2016

Their doorbell rang, multiple times. But apparently not expecting anyone so early in the morning—it was around 9 a.m.—the husband and wife ignored it. To the two thugs outside, no answer meant no one was home. Thinking they had a clear window of opportunity, they broke a window and attempted to break into the Peoria, Ariz., home.

At the sound of the breaking glass, the male homeowner grabbed his gun and went to investigate. Seeing two people trying to get into his home—one who was half inside—he shot at the suspects, hitting the 17-year-old intruder in the leg. Both he and the second suspect fled and drove off in a light-colored sedan.

Police responding to the 911 call spotted the injured suspect at a nearby convenience store and took him into custody. He was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. The second suspect remains at large.
