Home InvasionHome Invader Shot At North Little Rock Home

USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Arkansas Online reports 02-20-18 in North Little Rock, Arkansas, local police said a suspected intruder was shot Tuesday morning around 11 a.m. while breaking into a home.

The 34-year-old resident was watching a movie with a female guest when heard an individual kicking his front door.

The resident grabbed his handgun and told the intruder, “Stop kicking the door. I’ve got a gun.” The warning was ineffective as the kicking continued until the door was forced open according to police reports.

The report goes on to say the homeowner fired two shots from the kitchen as the intruder, later identified as 37-year-old Maumelle resident, entered the living room.

The intruder then stumbled back out of the home and fell into a pile of leaves in front of the house.

When officers and paramedics arrived shortly after he was transported to Baptist Health Medical Center-North Little Rock, where he received treatment for a gunshot wound to the torso, police said.

Comments:

The resident gave verbal warnings, used cover across the room, didn’t drag the intruder back into the house and called 911 right away.

Clearly self-defense, they don’t get better than this!

    NOT SO FAST.

    Take this scenario that recently happened in one State.

    An intruder kept pounding the door to a house. The owner repeatedly don’t him to back off. The guy didn’t. He shot through the door and killed him.

    Sounds cut and dried – don’t it??

    Well, here’s what really happened.

    The guy was drunk. Thought it was his house (as the houses reportedly all look alike) and so was banging or keying the door to try to get in what he THOUGHT WAS HIS HOUSE!!

    TRAGIC ACCIDENT! So things are NEVER what they seem. This should be a case scenario studied by homeowners with big heads and even smaller brains. :twisted:

      I forgot to add what could have COMPLICATED the case even more.

      What happened if the guy burst through the door and saw what he thought was someone in HIS HOUSE??? And charged the real homeowner??

      Imagine the confusion of BOTH parties as the homeowner recognizes his neighbor or vice versa??

      What happens if the drunk pulled his own gun in the confused state?? What happens if the real homeowner thought his neighbor had gone mad and pulled his gun too??

      The bottom line could be – JUST DON’T GO HOME DRUNK. You already jeopardized your life and others driving home in that state. :roll:

      Oops Alert. :arrow: :arrow:

      The word “don’t” should be told.

    • Redlist Renegade
