The homeowner went outside to investigate, when he heard his wife inside screaming.Cops eventually arrived and took Caleb into custody. He died of his wounds at a local hospital a short time later.
He ran back into the home where his wife told him the intruder, later identified as 18-year-old Andrew Caleb Barnett, was inside their attached garage attempting to get into the home through a wooden door with a window, according to police. The homeowner reportedly yelled several times that he had a gun, telling Barnett not to come inside. However, Barnett continued to make advances toward the man. Police say the homeowner fired one shot at Barnett, hitting him in the arm, and going into his chest area. Barnett apparently fell to the floor but got back up fighting the homeowner, at one point, biting him in the arm.
Psilocybin Mushrooms, or "Magic Mushrooms" were involved. The people who provided the drugs were later arrested.
The homeowner is not expected to face charges, because self-defense is a human right, and in Tennessee it is also your legal right.
