    Homeowner Shoots, Kills Invader - Detroit News Story - WDIV Detroit

    DETROIT -- A man was shot eight times and killed Monday night as he tried to rob a home on Detroit's east side, police said.

    Police said two men were trying to break into a home on the 5200 block of Kensington Avenue when the homeowner inside grabbed his pistol and fired.

    One of the home invaders was killed and the other fled in a newer-model white Chevrolet Impala.

    The homeowner's mother was sleeping in the house at the time and was not harmed. The homeowner is not expected to face charges.
    8 shots ought to get the job done. I like the last line, and wished more self-defense stories ended that way.

    I guess he ran out of ammo before getting bad guy #2 in his sights.

    I hate it when they always have to add, "The homeowner is not expected to face charges." Duh.
    The most exhilarating thing in life is getting shot at with no results.

    Sounds like a 1911 to me. If he had a spare mag maybe he could have got #2 as well.
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    I bet that the second guy went to file a police report. That armed citizen might have hurt him, and THEN how was he supposed to earn a living?

    Ah! A happy story right before I go to bed!
