    Woman uses rifle to run off invader

    A Port Charlotte woman foiled a home burglary early Sunday when she confronted the would-be burglar with a .22-caliber rifle.

    Authorities are now looking for an unidentified black man who tried to break into the LaSalle Avenue home around 6 a.m.
    Sheriff’s detectives said the woman scared away the man while investigating a suspicious noise outside her house.

    The suspect, described as about 6 feet tall, was standing on the lanai when the armed homeowner frightened him.

    The man, who was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and black shorts, hopped a privacy fence and disappeared.

    Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office at (941) 639-2101, or Crime Stoppers at (800) 780-5477.

    Shouldn't that be black hoodie and brown shorts?

    I love this statement...

    "The suspect, described as about 6 feet tall, was standing on the lanai when the armed homeowner frightened him."

    ...That statement cuts two ways depending on ones point of view.

    + Woman with rifle "frightens" BG away, so as to save her own life upon she being frightened by him being there inappropriately...Which is another thing wrong with our society.

    - Woman with rifle "frightens" BG away, as a civilian with a gun is a frightening thing to see and think of...Which is another thing wrong with our society.

    Had I been he writer I would have used different terminology and a wholly different lexicon overall.
