    Man Shoots & Wounds Home Intruder

    Man Shoots, Wounds Home Intruder - News Story - WSMV Nashville

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A husband took matters into his own hands when his wife and newborn child were held up during a home invasion.

    The woman said she was able to grab her phone and call her husband after three men kicked in her door late Thursday. The home is located in Glencliff Court in south Nashville.

    The husband said he rushed home after getting the call from his wife, but was stopped by police and accused of speeding on the way. After explaining to the officer what was happening at his home, the man continued home with the officer following.

    The man said he parked in the back yard and saw the intruders come running out the back of his house with guns drawn, so he grabbed his gun, and the two sides exchanged shots.

    “They fired shots at the citizen, and the citizen returned fire at the suspects. One of the suspects is struck and flees on foot,” said Metro police Capt. Randy Hickerson.

    One intruder who was shot by the man was found later on a nearby street. The other two were able to evade capture, police said.

    The woman, baby and man were not hurt. Police said the intruders did not take anything from the house.
    Sounds like a good outcome for the homeowner, but I wonder how the LEO that followed him home allowed the homeowner to exchange shots? Where was the LEO, covering the front maybe?

    The officer was most likely at the front door knocking and yelling, "Police, open the door!" That way the criminals can jet out the back and the officer is saved from having to engage them. At least that is the way it works in Memphis.

    Good for the homeowner. Glad he had a gun and could defend his castle and his family.

    It is not the Bill of Privileges. It is not the Bill of Permits. It is the Bill of Rights.

    People should not be afraid of the government; the government should be afraid of the people.

    Maybe the home owner should apply for a job at the PD.

    Hope he got an "atta boy" though.

    I would hope that my wife would grab a gun and call 911 before calling me at work.

    I think I would have called the police as I was on my way. I wonder if more will come out about this?
    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...
