Self-defense Ends Home Invasion

Local News | The Pensacola News Journal. A typical case of a homeowner defending himself and his family from an intruder.
[Edward Lucas Sr.] 63, of the 3900 block of West Mallory Street, never wanted to have to use his .22 caliber rifle that way, but Tyrone Fyoungious Preyer, 29, would not stop breaking through the door, he said.

"I yelled 'Get out of my house,' but he kept coming," said Lucas, a retired Sears employee who resided at that house for almost eight years. "I was scared to death."
How is a 63-year-old supposed to defend himself from a 29-year-old without the aid of a firearm? Personally I wouldn't use a .22 caliber firearm, but it got the job done.
Preyer's name appears 14 times in Escambia County criminal court records, with seven felonies, including: aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, burglary and grand theft auto.
There will be no charges, as this is clearly self-defense.
