Kentucky Man Drives Away Burglar With Single Shot

posted on June 27, 2017

An injured, would-be burglar was discovered in the woods and apprehended by police—after being turned in by a local dog.

WKYT-TV reports that Laurel County police responded to a home burglary around 10 a.m. last Friday morning. Officers say the homeowner had fired his shotgun at an intruder, sending the suspect running out the back door of the house and into a nearby wooded area. When deputies investigated, they noticed a stray dog barking at a specific spot in the woods. That’s where they found 40-year-old Otis Kemp, who was carrying several stolen items and bleeding from a gunshot wound to the upper torso.

Kemp was airlifted to the University of Kentucky Medical Center for serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The sheriff’s office has charged Kemp with first degree burglary, criminal mischief, evading police and third degree terroristic threatening.
