    Good - Intruder shot at Athens business after pulling gun on owner

    A 55-year-old Athens man was in critical condition Sunday after he was shot by the owner of a Westside check-cashing business who fired in self-defense when the man pulled a gun, Athens-Clarke police said.

    .............where he was treated for gunshot wounds to his face and head, police said. (ewe, sounds bad for him... he had a fully loaded handgun - read the article)

    .............The owner got his licensed handgun and opened the door to find out what the man was up to, police said, as Collins ran into a storage room attached to the business.

    The business owner alerted Collins that he was armed and called for him to show himself. When Collins came out pointing a pistol at him, the businessman fired his gun three times, striking Collins twice, police said. (Two out of 3.... OK!)

    ..............The shooting was a justified case of self-defense, according to Holeman, who added, “we advocate for people to call 911 and let us check to see what is going on.” (YA Think? Sure, the cops would really like to politely know when you've just shot someone!)

    "..The business owner alerted Collins that he was armed and called for him to show himself."

    It might just be me, but I would let the burglar sit in the storage room and let the cops call him out.

    Hard to say; perhaps the business owner was concerned the guy might mount a surprise attack, maybe even find a way out and come at him from another direction.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    appears the business owner knew how to handle his gun....two out of the three in the head area. Agree with Retsupt99......good shooting under stress.
