My guess is the police are hoping to be able to charge the homeowner with something.
Police say a man, 41, was sleeping in his home when he heard someone come into his garage. He went to investigate and found the burglar, police say.
The homeowner shot the burglar twice in the chest, police say. The wounded man, whom police have not identified, was taken to an area hospital in critical and unstable condition.
Still, self-defense works. Self-defense is a human right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
