    Brewton, Alabama - Older couple defends home.

    BREWTON -- 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."

    Out of jail for only 48 hours?

    It only took one head shot to give this dirtbag his just rewards?

    Glad the BG is now incapable of harming others. Yet, why was this less-than-human released back out into society from the Nebraska jail? Makes you wonder what others have been released too. Should we all need to "lock & load" for the wave of BG's coming at us? Our justice system need an enema, like really bad.

    One shot to the forehead.

    That's a heck of a good shot under an extremely stressful situation!

    kudos to the old guy. What a great shot. So the BG said to the old guy to put down his gun and the old man killed him..

    Sorry for laughing, but that is funny.

    Apparently Nebraska released him to go to Alabama for final rehabilitation.
