Kentucky Homeowner Shoots Two Burglars Who Burst Through Door

posted on January 12, 2017

Two would-be burglars singled out the wrong McCracken County home to stage their robbery. They picked one with an armed homeowner, unafraid to defend himself.

Sheriff’s deputies told WSIL-TV 3 that around 11 p.m., the homeowner heard someone kicking in the front door of the residence, so he grabbed his gun and fired at two intruders. Responding officers found one man, 34-year-old Christopher Ingram, seriously wounded and lying in the driveway. They found the second suspect, 39-year-old Toby William Reed, inside the home and already deceased from his gunshot wounds.

Ingram was taken to a local hospital, then airlifted to a Nashville with life-threatening injuries. The homeowner was unharmed.
