Sgt. William Wauford said Mr. Childress was shot once in the chest when he was confronted by the homeowner, ...Police are investigating a report of an injured guy at a local hospital.
The resident had just arrived home around 8:30 p.m. and saw signs that his home was burglarized. Investigators say two other people may have been inside at the time and a second person may have been wounded, Sergeant Wauford said. No one else was identified.
If you break into enough homes you will eventually encounter an armed homeowner. If you are really unlucky, this will happen the first time you try it.
Self-defense is a human right.
