BREWTON, Alabama - The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office says a home invasion ended with gunfire and one man dead. But it was not the homeowner.
According to deputies, Jeremy McCall broke into a home on Highway 31, north of Brewton, around 3:00 a.m. He burst into the couple's bedroom and pointed a gun at them. The husband grabbed his gun and fired at McCall, killing him.
McCall's body was transported to the Department of Forensic Sciences in Mobile for an autopsy.

Stand your ground! When they enter the bedroom it's game over. This BG got what was coming.

I guess that could not have possibly turned out better. BG points gun at intended victim, owner shoots him dead, society wins.

Wow! A story about 'early retirement'...sound like it worked out perfectly. Nice shooting, Mr. Home-Owner.

Shame he didn't wake up before the BG got to the bedroom though. That could have gone the other way once the BG was in the bedroom with a gun pointed at them.
I'd be interested to know how the BG got in the house.
It's situations like this that I don't like to lock the gun up but for my little boys safety I lock it up!

81-year-old man shoots Escambia County home invader to death
An 81-year-old man shot and killed a masked gunman during a home invasion early this morning at a residence north of Brewton, Escambia County Sheriff Grover Smith said.
The sheriff said the robber had been released from a Nebraska jail just two days before he was killed.
Smith declined to identify the homeowner, but said the man and his wife were in bed in their home along U.S. 31 north of town about 3 a.m. when the intruder kicked in the door to the home and entered their bedroom, demanding money.
Smith said the homeowner managed to retrieve a pistol from the bedside table and pointed it at the robber, who told the homeowner to drop the weapon.
Instead, Smith said, the homeowner fired the gun, striking the intruder in the forehead, killing him instantly.
Smith identified the intruder as Jeremy Paul McCall, believed to be 35 years old. Smith said McCall had a prior record, and had been released from a Nebraska jail about 48 hours before he was killed.
Smith said McCall's body was sent to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Mobile for autopsy.
The shooting will be presented to the grand jury, Smith said, but the sheriff said he doubted the homeowner would face any charges.
"The man was in his home, in bed with his wife, and he acted in self-defense," Smith said. "And as far as the wife, she had armed herself with a shotgun by the time I got there."
