Police Find Alleged Home Invader’s Body in Yard After He Stumbles Upon Armed Resident

A Gwinnett County, Georgia, resident awoke to the sound of a door crashing in on Monday morning, armed himself and shot and killed one of three home intrusion suspects.

Police found the body of the deceased suspect “in a neighbor’s yard.”

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the homeowner went toward the sound of the crashing door only to come face to face with three suspects. A gun battle ensued in which the homeowner was shot in the leg. Police report that he was “bleeding profusely” when they arrived on scene.

Although wounded, the homeowner was able to force the suspects to flee the scene. The suspect who was fatally wounded collapsed in the neighbor’s yard as he fled. The other two suspects got into a vehicle and made their escape.

The homeowner was rushed to a hospital and his condition is unreported.

The Gwinnett Daily Post reports that the two suspects who escaped have not been identified.
