"He broke in before being shot"
Another story from the wonderful world of Southeastern Michigan. This time the BG, not content with getting away clean, returns to the scene of the crime at which point justice prevails. You just can't make this stuff up.
He broke in before being shot, cops say

A 29-year-old man who broke into a Clinton Township condominium didn’t leave with money or personal belongings — he left with a bullet in his leg, police said.
Around 3:40 a.m. today, a 36-year-old homeowner awoke to noises that sounded like icicles falling off his roof. He went to the closet, got a shotgun he uses for hunting, and turned on the light in his hallway.
The suspect was standing 5 feet from him, saying he had the wrong house and would be leaving, Police Capt. Richard Maierle said.
The homeowner tried to stop him until authorities could be notified and wrestled the suspect before he got away. At that time, the homeowner told his neighbor to call police, which the neighbor had already done after hearing the racket.
But the suspect soon returned and charged the homeowner. During the scuffle, the gun fired once at the ground and then again, hitting the intruder in the leg.
When he continued fighting, the homeowner struck him in the face with the butt of the gun, Maierle said.
When officers arrived, the suspect — whom they believe was high on crystal meth — also struggled with them before he was taken to Henry Ford Macomb Hospital, where he was listed in serious condition, police said.
Police are seeking an arrest warrant to charge him with home invasion.

Good enough for the *******, the story would've been even better if the BG left with some R.B.I.s (Really Bad Injuries)

Not sure if Michigan has the Castle Doctrine or not, but here in Missouri he would have been dropped on the first visit.
Turn on hallway lights and BG is 5 feet away? Two .45 JHP's COM.
I don't relish the idea of having to shoot someone, but once they break into my house their soul is mine.

Should have shot him when he broke in the first time.

I don't know if I think he should have shot him the first time,(as long as the person was peaceful) but he should never have wrestled with him! Shoot them or don't shoot them, but never get that close if you can have any control over it. That is a very bad circumstance. It is really remarkable that this didn't turn out badly for the occupant.
But if you are authorized to carry a weapon, and you walk outside without it, just take a deep breath, and say this to yourself...

+1 to bigiceman. Distance is your friend. Especially when you have a firearm and the other guy doesn't.
