Man Shot By Homeowner Faces Charges
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Prosecutors on Wednesday charged a Kansas City man after a victim fought back during a botched robbery.
Clemmie Hobby, 38, was brought into Police Headquarters on Wednesday afternoon where he'll be facing charges, including terrorizing a family in their own home. Hobby was shot by a homeowner on Tuesday afternoon during an attack at a home near Gregory Boulevard and Holmes Road, police said.
Hobby was still dressed in a hospital gown and needed a wheelchair to get around when he arrived at the police station.
Investigators said Hobby confronted the couple in their front yard, grabbing the woman and restraining her while he attempted to take items from the house, including a flat-screen television. Officers said the homeowner got his gun out and shot Hobby in the leg. He was still on the floor when police arrived, investigators said.
The man who shot Hobby told KCTV5 on Wednesday that is was a tough decision to shoot another man, but he said he couldn't stand to see his loved one being threatened. He said he realizes it's a decision a lot of other people in the situation wouldn't have made.
Hobby has been charged with burglary, robbery and kidnapping. He was being held on a $250,000 bond.

The crook should send a Thank You note to the homeowner.

Touch my wife, or enter my home, and I will be forced to end the threat.
