Illinois Homeowner Shoots Intruder Who Ignored Warning

posted on November 25, 2015

A Madison County, Ill., man was awakened Thursday night when a stranger tried to enter his home. “When (the homeowner) saw him the first time, he realized he didn’t know who he was, so as the incident progressed and the individual didn’t leave, he continued to warn him that he had a firearm,” said Madison County Sheriff John Lakin to Fox 2 News. “In this particular case this individual continued to try to make his way into the home and the homeowner, in fact, fired one shot striking him.”

The homeowner then dialed 911. When sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, they found the suspect lying in the yard with a gunshot wound in the upper chest. The suspected burglar is expected to recover and is being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The suspect has not yet been charged.
