Intruder Shot By Lexington, Ky., Homeowner

posted on April 22, 2015

A Lexington, Ky., homeowner is not expected to face charges after shooting a man who kicked down his door late Friday night. According to police, the suspect, 52-year-old Robert Cole, had been visiting the homeowner earlier that day when the two got into an argument. Cole left the man’s house, but when he returned just before 11 p.m. and attempted to force his way inside, the homeowner fired at him.

Police say Cole, who has been charged with first-degree burglary, was treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital and later transported to the Fayette County Detention Center. The shooting is being treated as self-defense.
