Armed Homeowner Meets Home Invader

Homeowner shoots burglar during home invasion 5:44 PM | Charlotte, North Carolina Don't people realize that homeowners are armed? I guess not.
Troy Howard said he woke up to the sound of breaking glass at about 2:50 a.m. Monday.

The man and his wife then saw a beam of light shining under the bedroom door.

Howard, a 71-year-old former Marine, said he always sleeps with a shotgun by his bed and he jumped into action. He said he fired two shots when he heard someone grab the doorknob.
That will ruin your day.

Police found a blood trail, but no bad guy. I hope they catch him soon, give him the medical care he requires, and then throw his ass in jail.
