An armed 82-year-old man in Kanawha County, West Virginia, turned the tables on a home intrusion suspect Saturday by pulling a gun and shooting him dead.
The deceased suspect was identified as 24-year-old Timothy Dean Coker.
According to WSAZ, Kanawha County deputies say Coker allegedly “broke in through a window in the garage where the 82-year-old homeowner was working and threatened the homeowner.”
The homeowner responded by pulling a handgun and shooting the suspect, fatally wounding him.
No charges have been filed against the homeowner and none are expected.
