Homeowner Shoots Burglar Who Charged Him

posted on May 20, 2017

Tuesday evening, a burglar was rummaging through a car in a quiet Memphis neighborhood when he was surprised by the car’s owner. Seeing the homeowner approaching, the suspect jumped out of the vehicle and charged at the man. What the suspect didn’t know was the homeowner also owned a gun—which he was carrying.

Police tell WREG-TV that the victim of the burglary pulled his gun and opened fire, striking the suspect. The owner of the car then immediately called 911 to report the theft and subsequent shooting.

Investigators say the suspect is expected to recover, and that no charges will be filed against the homeowner as the shooting was declared self-defense.
