USA –-( WFIE 14 News reports 05-22-19 in Daviess County Kentucky; authorities responded to a shooting in the 7900 block of Hwy 405, Tuesday morning at around 8 AM.

According to the sheriff’s office, a homeowner called 911 about his neighbor who was trying to break into his house. The homeowner said this intruding neighbor was acting strange and threatening.

Daviess County Chief Detective Bill Thompson (paraphrasing for clarity) said, ‘Apparently the intruder came in earlier that morning, and the resident was able to convince the him to leave. The intruder did, in fact, leave. Unfortunately, a short time later, he came back, this time armed’.

The sheriff’s office says the homeowner shot the intruder twice in the chest after the man got inside. The individual was taken to the Owensboro Health Hospital, where he had surgery to remove the projectiles and treat his wounds.

According to the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office, the homeowner is not facing criminal charges. Charges will likely be filed against the wounded neighbor after he’s released from the hospital.

The intruder is reported to be a neighbor of the homeowner, but no information has been released as to these details.


You can never tell what a potential intruder is going to do. A rational person would not have returned.

Normal citizens fall into the trap of believing the criminal will do what they themselves would do if they were the opponent.

The sheriff should have been called after the original attempted entry. Even if the cops did not respond, it creates a record of the earlier attempt putting the resident on stronger legal grounds for the later shooting.
