Story Update: Click Link on 1st post to view video....
The Homeowner shot the masked intruder after being shot in the arm in his living room with the first shot of the BG's weapon. When he returned fire he missed with his 1st shot but found his mark with the second volley from his shotgun as the Gunman ran toward the door.. The BG was in the process of stealing the Homeowners Guns when discovered by the Homeowner who had been alerted by his barking dogs of a problem.
Both men were armed with shotguns.
Now here's the weird and sad part.
The Bad Guy was the Homeowners own Step Son! The young man had already been in trouble for threatening his Step Father months before with a Gun.
Apparently the boy knew his stepfater had weapons and decided to steal them.
The Identity was not discovered until the Sheriffs Department arrived and pealed back the dead gunmans mask.
Video has 911 tape of the call.
Sheriff does not think there will be any charges against the Homeowner.
Interesting development, but sad.
I once met my 19 year old Step Son coming in late in my hallway at 2 am in my skivies and armed with my 45.
Step Son promised to never come in late without calling out and identifying himself again.
He said it was because he never wanted to see me in my skivies again. :)
