Kotarsky heard a kick at his back door at around 6:30 p.m. and seconds later, heard his garage door being kicked in. He grabbed his .44 caliber gun and met the intruder inside his garage. "He screamed like a little girl," said Kotarsky.Police caught and arrested the bad-guy.
When the intruder ran, Kotarsky, gun in hand, grabbed his iphone and gave chase. After calling police, Kotarsky videotaped the man who had broken into his home.
Less than 10 hours later, police responded to a similar call on Potomac Avenue. Residents woke up to find someone in their home and one of them got a gun and fired a shot at the intruder. The intruder got away unharmed.This one, apparently, got away.
Police remind people to know the law regarding self-defense with a firearm. (Always a good idea, because ignorance of the law is only an excuse if you are a cop.)
Self-defense is a human-right. No bad guys were injured bringing this story to you.
