Janice Hudson called 9-1-1 to report an intruder. Leroy Hudson opened the back door of the house and found a man standing in front of him. He demanded to know what the man was doing, hoping to scare him off.How is a 71-year-old to defend himself from a 26-year-old thug without a firearm? That doesn't seem to be a concern to the police. Brian Schmautz, a Portland Police Bureau spokesman, said keeping a gun at home could be dangerous. Hey Schmutz, having an intruder in your home and being UNARMED is dangerous.
But the man said nothing. Instead, he walked toward Leroy Hudson, and Hudson raised the gun and shot him. Police arrived soon after.
