Columbus man shoots intruder
Hopefully he won't get charged. Story lacks some details, like if the intruder was armed, but all in all, good for the GG to defend himself.
A man defending his South Side home shot and killed an intruder last night, police said.
The shooting occurred just after 10 p.m. inside 925 Lilley Ave. just south of Livingston Avenue.
According to police, the homeowner was on the second floor.
"He heard a crash through the front-door window," said Columbus police homicide detective Bill Rotthoff. "He comes downstairs and there’s a person in the living room he doesn’t know."
Police declined to release the name of the intruder, who died at Grant Medical Center, or the homeowner.
The homeowner was being interviewed early this morning by police. It was unlikely he would be charged, Rotthoff said.
