Homeowner Near St. Louis Stops Home Invader

posted on December 16, 2015

A homeowner in unincorporated north St. Louis County used his firearm to stop a home invasion on Monday morning.

According to police, the homeowner heard loud banging at his door around 10 a.m. and saw two men he did not recognize standing on his front porch—prompting him to retrieve his handgun. A short time later, the two suspects went to the rear of the home and tried to force their way in through the back door. That’s when the homeowner and intruders exchanged gunfire.

When police arrived, they found one suspect dead near the back door of the residence, along with a firearm, according to police Sgt. Brian Schellman. The victim was not injured. “At this point, it does not appear that the homeowner did anything wrong,” Schellman said. Officers are currently searching for the second suspect, who fled the scene.
