Another Octogenarian Defends Himself

Proximity to the police precinct is no protection. Police: 80-Year-Old Shot And Killed Intruder Near Police Precinct
Greensboro police say an 80-year-old man shot and killed a break-in suspect early Wednesday morning.

Police responded to the home on Walnut Street, which is near Summit Avenue.

When officers arrived, they found 19-year-old Michael L. Medley, Jr. dead from a gunshot wound. Investigators say Charles Haithcock, 80, shot Medley after the 19-year-old broke into his home.
He was in barricaded in a back room, and shot through the door, according to a neighbor.

The investigation continues, but Mr Haithcock has not been charged.

Self-defense is a human right.
