    tenant shoots intruder in leg

    i hope you guys dont think im some kinda reporter but i see some
    stories andthought i might passthem on.this story was from the
    macomb daily. a man accussed of attemted burglary was shot in
    the leg after struggling with his victim. the victims leg later had to
    be amputaded. clinton township(my hometown) det.capt. said
    the suspect ,who was not idendified pending arrainment,was shot
    with a .12 gauge shotgun owned by a man living at the colony
    condos. the shooting occured at 3:30 a.m. monday after police
    received acall from a neighbor about a breaking and entering in
    progress. the victim,who told police he only recently returned
    from deer hunting,said he heard some noises coming from a
    second floor and initially thought it was ice falling off the roof.
    capt. maierle said the victim told police he heard someone walking
    around upstairs and grapped his shotgun from a closet.
    he racked the gun hoping it would scare off the intruder. he opened
    the hallway door,flicked on a light and saw a guy standing in the
    hallway about 5 feet from where he was standing.
    the suspect, who is a 29 y/o rochester man, reportly told the victim
    im outta here and ran downstairs.
    the homeowner chased and caught the man on the front yard. the
    man broke loose and ran away.
    a neighbor told thevictim that he had already called police when he
    heard the commotion. while they were talking, the suspect returned
    and screamed, im going to kill you. i have a gun. while the suspect
    was screaming at hte victim-who was standing on his neighbors
    adjoining front porch-- thevictim approched the suspect still holdind
    his shotgun. the two men struggled and the shotgun discharged into
    theground. somehow thegun was reracked and the victim was shot
    in the leg during the struggle. theman also stuggled with police.
    the suspect was taken to henry ford hospital in critical cont.
    not much more on story but just goes to show,as we all know
    any crime,any time,and any place. sorry so long but shows its good
    be prepared as best we can. glad to hear that homeowner is ok.
    considering bg came back saying he had a gun and was going to
    kill this poor guy just going on with his daily life.

    ... the suspect returned and screamed, im [sic] going to kill you. i have a gun. the victim approched [sic] the suspect still holdind [sic] his shotgun. the two men struggled ... the victim was shot in the leg during the struggle.
    Prior proof of criminal activity (B&E, burglary in an occupied home), plus verbal confirmation of having a deadly weapon, plus the expressed intent to use it commit murder. And the homeowner allows the criminal to get within contact distance to disarm him? He's lucky to be alive.

    Moral of the story: don't do that.
    Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.
    Thoughts: Justifiable self defense (A.O.J.).
    Explain: How does disarming victims reduce the number of victims?

    i like to think i would not have chased the man after he was out of the house. being all amped up from the encounter though, maybe i would have chased him.just focusing on his description after leaving would be the saner choice.

    Idiot probably would have returned anyway.
    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    Shot in the leg... Practice practice practice!

    Im confused who was shot? The report says the burglar was shot but it said the victim lost his leg. So which is it? This is why i hate news papers and televisions. They flippantly use the term victim so i can't tell who is who.

    Bad guy should be thankful to be alive, most people would have shot him as soon as the homeowner saw them. It's "Shoot first, ask questions later" In this day and age of home invasions.
