    Ideal result. Kudos to the citizen for being capable of withstanding the felons.

    About the only thing remaining is to find the other cretin, then to charge him (and his compatriot, if he survives it) with the whole truckload ... including with his murder if that guy expires in the hospital.

    Good for the home owner. If the criminal doesn't learn his then he needs more of what's "good" for him.

    If someone must get shot, it's always best when it's the intruder(s), and not the home owners.

    Desktop PC version of the story.

    Asked by a CNN reporter "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist"?, the Marine sniper simply shrugged & replied "recoil".

    Now more than ever, we are at war on our home soil ... WAKE UP & arm our troops when they are on home soil!

    One POS shot and one on the run is not as good as two POSs DRT but it is far better than the home owner getting shot.

    The home owner must now be extra vigilant as the one that got away may return with more help.

    He may also want to consider using a 12 gauge with 00 buck the next time.

    Memphis is not known as a safe place to live. All homeowners should be armed..........but that's what a few of the comments below that article said also.

    You got that right Granny! Maybe the folks down in the flat land are taking a cue from the good citizens of Detroit!

    The other perp should be charged w/ the shooting when caught.

    Cities should be doing public campaigns highlighting all these self defense shootings to encourage responsible citizens to get trained and also to tell criminals that crime does not pay and that crime gets criminals shot and killed.

    This happened in my mothers neighborhood. (two blocks away!) A lot of this kind of stuff happens there! I wish I could get her and my sister to get permits and carry. I'm surprised they don't because both went through years of abuse where their husbands threatened them with guns.

    I prefer a 12G with slugs.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    From the comments section, one gets the impression that Memphis residents have put up with about all the crime they are willing to put up with. Most were cheerleading for the demise of the dirt bags.
