Police said the homeowner tried to keep his distance, when the alleged robber turned his attention to the woman. The man grabbed the woman, police said, and pulled her inside the house as he started grabbing items from inside the house.The would-be bad-guy was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The suspect barely made it to the doorway with a flat-screen when police said the homeowner, now armed with a gun he retrieved from his truck, confronted him.
"(The homeowner) told him to stop, I'll shot," Shaffer said. "He didn't and the man shot him in the leg."
People are finally coming on board with the idea that self-defense is a good idea.
Whatever was behind the incident, neighbors were far from upset with how things turned out.Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
"What makes me feel better is [the] homeowner took action and he did something about it," area resident Rick Boehle said.
