    NewsChannel 5.com - Nashville, Tennessee - Homeowner Shoots and Kills Intruder

    HAMPTON CROSSROADS, Tenn. - A weekend home invasion has the TBI investigating the dramatic chain of events that led to the shooting of a would-be burglar.

    The incident happened in the Hamptons Crossroads area in White County.

    Police said would-be burglar, 32-year-old Brian Cook from Crossville, was interrupted by the homeowner.

    The homeowner said he received a phone call from his daughter about a strange man in the neighborhood banging on windows.

    The homeowner returned to find Cook coming out of his house. When the homeowner confronted Cook, the intruder reached for his gun, but the homeowner shot first - killing Cook.

    The White County Sheriff said the homeowner did have a permit to carry a gun and was within his right to protect himself.

    No word yet on whether charges will be filed.

    Sheriff: Serial Burglar Shot, Killed - News Story - WSMV Nashville

    SPARTA, Tenn. -- A man wanted for home break-ins in as many as 10 counties picked the wrong house last week in White County.

    Police said the burglar, Bryan Cook, 32, of Crossville, attempted to rob a house but was shot and killed by homeowner, Keith Girdley.

    Girdley told authorities he arrived home Thursday morning to find Cook about to leave after breaking inside.

    When he asked Cook what he was doing, he said the burglar pulled a gun from his waistband. That's when Girdley pulled out his own gun and shot the man.

    White County Sheriff Oddie Shoupe said Cook had already piled several items on a chair near the front door when he was confronted by Girdley.

    Shoupe said at this time no chares were pending against Girdley, and that he was registered to carry the gun he used to shoot Cook.


    Sounds like another responsible, law-abiding CWW citizen using a firearm to protect himself and his property.

    Good for Mr. Girdley, he had is gun with him, apparently with a round in the chamber, and not in a drawer in his house, he had a plan and executed it when he found it necessary.
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.
