Break Into Enough Homes, and You Will Eventually Find an Armed Homeowner

The results are as expected. Teen shot while trying to break in home in Cheatham County
[Detective Travis] Walker said the boy was inside a home at 1407 Valley View Rd. near Trouble Road shortly after 3 a.m., and the homeowner thought he heard a noise and that's when he got his gun and shot the teen.
He got shot in the arm. He is really lucky he didn't get shot in the head, or killed outright. Bet he doesn't feel lucky.

This would-be burglar is 17-years-old. That means that groups like the Brady Bunch will count this as a "teen tragically shot." They will ignore the fact that he was engaged in felony home-invasion, and that he is likely to be tried as an adult. None of that matters. (Why clutter the issue with facts?)

While the authorities are still investigating - that's what they do - this seems a pretty straight-forward case of self-defense to me. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.

He's lucky it was a shot to the arm, but even that can lead to bleeding out. 3:00am is a likely time to die.
