    GOOD: Elderly Gentleman Uses A Handgun To Defend Himself - Lakewood, NJ

    Intruder shot by homeowner in critical condition -- Newsday.com

    LAKEWOOD, N.J. - Police say a man who allegedly broke into a Lakewood home and was shot in the head by the owner remains in critical condition.

    The Ocean County Prosecutor's Office says 31-year-old Eric Tucker of Lakewood was shot by an elderly man who confronted him when he broke in through a kitchen window around 5 a.m. Friday.

    Police have not released the homeowner's name, but say the gun used in the shooting was registered to him and that he called 911 to report the incident.

    Two other men have been arrested and charged with burglary in connection with the break-in.

    That is the way to go for the elderly, they should be armed, no matter what AARP thinks or says. They are a easy mark for punks most of the time.
