COLUMBUS, Ohio—A man fatally shot an armed intruder while protecting his 5-year-old relative late Wednesday, authorities said.
NBC 4 reported with the FAST FACTS.
Columbus police continued to investigate an overnight shooting on the city’s Southwest Side.
CPD said the incident started with a home invasion but it was the suspect who was fatally shot.
CPD was called to a home on the 1500 block of Autumn Village Drive on reports of a shooting at about 11 p.m. Wednesday.
Officers found a man on a front porch with a gunshot wound to his neck.
The armed suspect broke into home shortly before he was fatally shot, CPD said.
“There was a knock on the door. The resident went to the door, at which time the victim out front entered the house with a firearm in commission of an aggravated robbery,” said CPD homicide Sgt. Dana Norman.
As the armed suspect entered the home, a man picked up his 5-year-old relative to protect child as well as a firearm and fired shots, according to authorities.
The suspect attempted to flee the home after being wounded but collapsed on the porch. He died a short time later.
Detectives have not released the identity of the suspect currently, but NBC4 was told the shooter and suspect did not know each other.
The police report listed the suspect as an unknown black male in his 20s.
The man who fatally shot the suspect was not a resident of the home; he was staying there with relatives. There were four people in home at time of the invasion: a woman, child and two men, one of whom is bedridden.
Authorities have have not released additional information on the shooter’s identity, either.
“It’s a very quiet neighborhood,” said neighbor Gary Dulaney.
No other injuries were reported from the incident.
“Five-years-old, man. You’re always concerned about the kid. I mean you hope you don’t bring your child into that situation. It is scary. I feel bad for him,” Dulaney said.
No charges were filed against the man who shot the intruder currently, but the case will be presented to the Franklin County grand jury for review.
Anyone with additional information on the city’s 49th homicide of 2009 was asked to call the CPD homicide squad at 614-645-4730.

Home invaders deserve 'no mercy', and this dirtbag paid a fair price for his stupidity.

WHY--WHY---WHY, do they always have to call the BG that got what he came for a "VICTIM" he is not the victim.

Good Shooting, I hope the 5 year old is OK....

Sounds like a good shoot, alright. I hope the 5 year old is not too traumatized by what they witnessed though.

I hate reporting like this. He wasn't a "victim", he was a criminal. let's call it like it is.
the victim out front entered the house with a firearm

Guns are bad, killing is bad, therefore the burglar is a 'victim.' After all, if it wasn't for the Bush tax cuts he'd probably be gainfully employed instead of trying to support his family like this, right? I hate liberal media 'logic'.
Also interesting that the good guy was able to retrieve and fire a gun quickly, even while grabbing the 5 yr old. I guess it wasn't locked away somewhere unloaded.

There will be a "grand jury" to decide if charges should be filed , WHY ? Sounds pretty clean to me.
