Hooray for the Good Guy
An intruder was shot and wounded by a resident wielding a handgun during a home invasion that took place about 5:30 p.m. Thursday at 401 W. Sixth St., the Monroe Police Department reported.
The suspect is receiving medical care at Mercy Memorial Hospital. Lt. Charles Abel, public information officer for the city police, said the man received more than one gunshot wound and has undergone surgery as a result.
The suspect's name is not being released because he has not yet been arraigned in court. Police said a court date is pending either on his release from the hospital or - if arrangements can be made for arraignment now - while he still is at Mercy Memorial.
A call came to Central Dispatch as a home invasion in progress. While police were on the way, according to reports, the man who lives in the house was confronted by the intruder. The resident fired multiple shots with a handgun, and the intruder fled.
When police checked the neighborhood, they found the suspect wounded and lying in the roadway near W. Seventh and Smith Sts. The Monroe Fire Department ambulance service took him to the hospital.
Lt. Abel said a duffel bag also was found near the suspect, with items that possibly were stolen elsewhere.
Nice shooting. Multiple shots taken, and multiple hits.

I wish they would give more details like calibur, round type and where the gun shot wounds (GSW) were. It would give us a greater perspective on calibur effectiveness and such. These stories are invaluable, even better than controlled lab testing. Why did BG not bleed out? A good story to watch for a follow up.

I wish there were some way to accurately and scientifically tabulate this 'field use combat data' which would prove to be much more real world useful than shooting into blocks of gelatin.
