76-Year Old Burglary Victim Thwarts Theft with Gun
On December 10th, 76-year old Leon Winder found a burglar hiding in his closet. He opened fire and later told reporters, "I was firing on him and he couldn't say nothing."
According to WVEC of Norfolk, Virginia, Winder called 911 after hearing strange noises in his home. When Winder went into a barbershop attached to his house he found a coat on the floor. As he bent down to pick it up, he saw 37-year old John Buck Fields hiding in the closet and shot at him twice.
Said Winder, "He didn't say nothing. I was firing on him and he couldn't say nothing."
The wounded burglar fled the house and was later captured by police. Fields is now hospitalized, and police say he faces a charge of burglary upon being released from the hospital.
