83-Year-Old Man Shoots Home Invader in the Chest

83-Year-Old Man Shoots Home Invader in the Chest

On April 5 an 83-year-old Huntsville, Alabama, man retrieved a handgun and shot a home intruder in the chest.

According to WAFF 48, the homeowner heard a knock at his back door “around 12:45 a.m.” and a man saying he needed help. The homeowner “turned to call police when the burglar kicked in the glass door and entered the home.”

At that point the 83-year-old man “grabbed a handgun and shot the burglar once in the chest.” The alleged burglar then dove through a window and fled. 

Police say the suspect was involved in “another incident” at another home just 15 minutes before he broke into the home of the 83-year-old man.
