The homeowner said he was cooking dinner and had enough time to grab a gun and his 5-year-old nephew.If you break into enough homes, you will eventually meet an armed resident. Results in that case are fairly predicable.
"I shot as I grabbed my nephew and started running up the stairs," the homeowner told the 911 dispatcher.
Police believe the man who tried to enter the home was armed because a gun was found lying near his body, which was discovered on the home's front steps.
Self-defense may be a human right, but adults have a moral obligation to protect the children in their care.
