The husband went out back to the garage to check out the noise. He ran into an intruder stealing lawn equipment.Shot and killed one urban goblin, who should have taken the neighbor's advice.
"He told him come on out, I know you are back there. The man came out towards him it's my understanding. He told him to stop. He kept backing up, but the man kept coming towards him. He shot him." says neighbor Forestine Grandberry.
"People just do stuff and get away with stuff, why don't they find a job." says neighbor Clydette Gray.And yes, they were shocked to discover that things like this can happen in their idyllic neighborhoods.
The DA says the homeowner will not be prosecuted. Self-defense is a human right, and in Tennessee, it is also your legal right.
