The homeowner waited for the prowler at the top of the stairs while he made his way into the home.
“He came across my dining room and to the foot of my stairway. I had a revolver and fired at him twice,” Hough said.
He added he could see the man with just enough light from what seemed like a nightlight the intruder was holding. He didn't have to come down the stairs because the two shots were enough to send the man running.
“I missed obviously, but I think I scared him,” Hough said as he pointed to the bullet holes. “This one probably was my first one because a revolver, a gun will recoil and go up. So I would say that's the first one and that's the second one.”
