    Good: Homeowner grabs gun, thwarts would-be robber

    Homeowner grabs gun, thwarts would-be robber - Bay News 9

    HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- A would-be robber in Tampa Thursday night wasn't expecting an armed home owner.

    According to Tampa Police, a homeowner in the 2200 block of North Boulevard shot (at) a man trying to break into his home.

    Officials said the break-in occurred just after 11:30 p.m. after the man had walked a guest out of the back door of his home. Moments later there was a knock at that door. When the man opened the door, a masked man with a knife tried to force his way in, according to police.

    The homeowner was stabbed in the hand but managed to get the door closed.

    Officials said the invader then broke a window in the back of the home in an attempt to get in. That's when the homeowner, who had retrieved a handgun, began firing shots at the masked man.

    The intruder ran away, fleeing in a dark colored, late-model Honda, according to officials. They did not say if the intruder was shot or not.

    The homeowner was not seriously injured.
