    Deputies: Homeowner Shot Teen Burglar - Jacksonville News Story - WJXT Jacksonville

    LAKE CITY, Fla. -- An 18-year-old man was shot in the leg by a homeowner Wednesday morning after breaking into a home, Columbia County deputies said.

    Deputies were called to 100 block of Cardinal Lane at 10:40 a.m. after the homeowner called 911 to report that someone had just broken into his home and that he had shot the burglar.

    Deputies said they found and arrested Damien Morgan in a nearby business parking lot.

    They said Morgan, who was shot in his left leg, was taken to Lake City Medical Center for further treatment.

    Deputies said the homeowner was alone in his home when Morgan kicked in the locked front door. They said the homeowner retrieved his .38-caliber handgun and was confronted by Morgan in the hallway of the home.

    Deputies said the homeowner, fearing for his safety, fired one shot, and Morgan fled from the home.

    Deputies said Morgan will be taken to the Columbia County Detention Facility and booked on burglary charges after being released from the hospital. They said his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

    I agree it was bad aim, but good job not letting this scum get away with his intended plan.

    It's a good shoot no matter what. He stopped the threat and the home invasion, ugly bad guy caught a round of searing hot copper-jacketed lead and the cops caught him.

    All in all, twas good. We don't know how the adrenaline rush with the homeowner was affecting him. Lots of iffy stuff here too. Shooting at the perp in a darkend setting, perp not standing "target" still and moving, etc. Put many of us into that same situation and we may have done exactly as he did.
