In Scioto County, Ohio, a homeowner called 911 to report someone outside the house discharging a firearm. The suspect was allegedly shooting through the front door, and the homeowner said that bullets had entered the house. As the call continued, the caller apparently fired back with his own gun and advised the dispatcher that the suspect would require medical attention.
Police arrived and found the suspect lying in the front yard; he was later pronounced dead. Sheriff V. Donini told reporters, “From the initial investigation and interviewing the witnesses, it appears that this was a case of self-defense with the homeowner protecting his family.”
