    Homeowner Takes Action

    Peoria Homeowner Shoots Intruder

    A Peoria homeowner shot an intruder Thursday morning.

    Peoria Police Public Information Officer Mike Tellef said the 62-year-old man heard someone breaking into his house near 85th and Olive avenues. Armed with a handgun, he went to investigate.

    "He told us that he told the subject to stop," Tellef said. "The subject kept approaching on him, he felt in fear of his life, that's why he fired the single shot that he fired."

    The 18-year-old suspect, Jason Rodriguez, a Glendale resident, was shot in the shoulder, and transported to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries where he was treated and released to police.

    Rodriquez was booked into 4th Avenue Jail and charged with burglary and aggravated assault.
    Good on the homeowner.

    I'm assuming this wasn't Peoria IL since the home owner was not arrested and the BG given a reward for finding the gun!!

    Nope, it looks like Peoria, AZ.

    The thug looks older that 18...but still a fair ending to the story...

    This is why I believe in a good quality tile floor...easier clean-up...

    Not sure about their laws, but Peoria is a LONG way from Chicago, both distance and mentality. No State castle law, but I'm sure it's OK to own a SD weapon (and use it in the right situation)

    Cool

    Glad for the homeowner and how it ended but me thinks he needs to do some target practice.
    As it is, I hope the kid never comes back to try and take revenge.
