    It happened around 5 a.m. on Central Avenue in Marshall-Shadeland Wednesday.

    The incident started when the owner of the car, the son, heard commotion and ran outside to confront the car thief. Shortly after, the father followed with a gun.

    Both men yelled at the alleged thief to stop, but when the father went to shoot at him, missed and hit his 27-year-old son in the shoulder instead.

    Adding insult to injury, the thief was still successful and made away with the car.

    Police are looking for the suspect and the car. The car is a 1986 gray Oldsmobile Cutlass with the license plate FLS4286.

    The son was taken to Allegheny General Hospital and his injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.

    Repeat after me everyone.. Rule #4 of gun safety: Be sure of your target and what is beyond it. I mean, I understand the father's need to protect the ownership of his beloved 1986 Oldsmobile Cutlass, but this is the kind of stuff that gives us gun owners a bad name... not to mention a field day for the local news of a predominant city such as Pittsburgh. Am I the only one who's noticed the ridiculous amount of coverage of gun crime in their local news lately?

    Why would you defend the stealing of a 1986 gray Oldsmobile Cutlass? I would have put the pink slip on the dash and the keys woould have been in the ignition.
    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    Can you use lethal force in defense of property in PA? He may be facing some criminal action if not.

    This certainly doesnt sound like a case of self defense to me.
