Octogenarian Homeowner Shoots Invader, Sends Him Scrambling

posted on October 12, 2017

Around 9 a.m. Monday morning, an 81-year-old Edgewater, Fla., homeowner heard a knock at the door, and the doorbell ringing over and over. After looking outside and not recognizing the visitor, the man retreated to the back of his house. That’s when he heard the shattering glass.

The elderly homeowner grabbed his .22-caliber pistol and returned in time to see the suspect reaching through the front window, brushing away broken glass. Fearing for his life and the safety of his wife, the homeowner fired several times through the window.

“I fired a whole bunch of them. I don't know whether I hit him or not, one time I heard him say, ‘Oh,’” the homeowner told 911. The suspect—described as being in his 30s or 40s with dirty blonde hair—remains at large after fleeing the scene in a Chevrolet Silverado.
