West Virginia Homeowner Injured In Gunfire Exchange With Invaders

posted on May 30, 2017

Coal City is a peaceful, rural setting in West Virginia. However, last Thursday it was the scene of a violent home invasion and subsequent shooting.

Glen Michael Israel was asleep in the early morning hours when intruders burst into his home. According to West Virginia MetroNews Network, Israel grabbed his gun and approached the “unknown suspects,” who had forced their way inside. Israel fired his shotgun at the suspects, but one of the intruders shot back—hitting the homeowner in the face. The invaders retreated after the exchange of gunfire, and remain on the loose.

Investigators say that Israel was shot with a small-caliber handgun, and after being transported to a local hospital he was flown to Charleston Area Medical Center for further care. His condition remains guarded.
