Home Invader Meets Armed Resident

The Columbus Dispatch : Man killed trying to rob home, police say If you break into homes, sooner or later you will meet an armed homeowner. (If you are really unlucky, it could be the first time you break in.)
An 18-year-old man armed with a BB gun was fatally shot while trying to rob the residents of a Franklinton home yesterday afternoon, police said.

Police arrested his two alleged accomplices, one of whom was his brother, and charged them with murder for taking part in a crime that resulted in his death.
While a grand jury will hear the case, the resident is not under arrest. Another person in the home, summed up the situation nicely.
"He's protecting his family. He's protecting my home," said LeMaster's roommate, who was asleep upstairs when the shots were fired. "It's (expletive) when you can't leave your front door open."
