    Breaking News: Homeowner hits home invader with shotgun blast; Deputies following blood trail | county, lincoln, door : Gaston Gazette



    A Lincoln County man picked up his shotgun and fired twice when he saw a flashlight beam shining under the bedroom door and then heard someone grabbing the door handle, according to a Lincoln County Sheriff's Office release.

    The incident took place around 2:50 a.m. Monday at a home on the 4400 block of Catawba Burris Road in eastern Lincoln County.

    At least one person was hit and officers followed a blood trail out of the residence, down the driveway and a short distance south on Catawba Burris Road, according to the release.

    Lincoln County Sheriff's officers are searching door-to door and a reverse 9-1-1 call went out at 4 a.m.

    The homeowners told Lincoln County investigators they were awakened by the sound of breaking glass around 2:50 a.m.

    Officers do not know if more than one person was inside the residence.

    Deputies including the Tactical warrant Team and K-9 units have been searching the area looking for the suspect.

    I'm betting if the guy was bleeding that bad he will show up at an emergency room,bullet wounds left untreated can get infected pretty quick

    The 71-year-old retired Marine said he wasn't scared.

    "If they tried to come in here, shoot ‘em," Howard said he was thinking.
    BG chose the wrong house. Good for you Marine.

    Homeowner shoots burglar during home invasion 7:23 AM | Local News | News for Charlotte, North Carolina | WCNC.com | Top Stories

    LINCOLNTON, N.C. -- A burglar in Lincoln County got a surprise Monday when a homeowner fired a shot at him during a break-in.

    Troy Howard said he woke up to the sound of breaking glass at about 2:50 a.m. Monday.

    "My wife heard it when he knocked that glass. I was sleep. She woke me up," Howard said.

    The burglar busted a window to get in. He also broke a picture near the bedroom door.

    Howard's wife of nearly 50 years was able to get up and quickly lock the door. She then hid in the closet.

    Howard said he saw a beam of light shining under the bedroom door. He grabbed his double-barreled shotgun and waited for the intruder.

    "He got it open and I mean he's coming," said Howard, who is a former Marine. "I was sitting there and I jammed and fired at the same time. I figure if I shoot right along there I about had to hit him."

    Investigators said they do not know how many burglars were inside the home, but at least one person was hit.

    Deputies found a trail of blood out of Howard's home, down the driveway and on Catawba Burris Road.

    Investigators have not yet located the burglar.
    Here I thought from the first story that the BG was trying to come in the front door, turns out he was already in the house and trying to get in the bedroom door. Good for the Marine.

    The guys doing home invasions and robberies, are sure on the losing lately.

    That's good to hear. Maybe they will get the point, it's a profession that may not be good for their health.
