    GOOD: Man Stops Home Invader - Crest Hills, IL

    Chicago News - 10/09/08 - Chicago News - abc7chicago.com

    CREST HILL (WLS) -- An intruder was shot and killed while breaking into a home in the far southwest suburbs.

    It happened around 6 p.m. Wednesday night in Crest Hill on Pioneer Road. A 68-year-old man was in his apartment watching television when the intruder broke the bedroom window.

    Police say he picked up a .38 revolver and fatally shot the intruder, identified as 34-year-old Demtrious Grove.

    It is unclear whether any charges will be filed against the resident.
    Good for the homeowner.

    Good thing it wasn't in Chicago or homeowner would be getting charged for protecting himself

    I love stories of the 'older' citizens who have chosen to defend themselves.
    This 68 year old deserves a pat on the back and a free box of ammo...job well-done!
