West Memphis man shoots, critically wounds intruder The homeowner woke up when the goblin taps him on the head with a firearm.
The homeowner, who has not been identified, told police that he was lying on the couch watching television early Friday when a man "tapped him on his head with an old black pistol" and demanded money. The homeowner gave the man his wallet, then pulled a handgun from under his pillow and shot the intruder.

"The homeowner stated he didn't know how many times he fired his weapon, but that he fired every shot in his magazine," said Mike Allen, assistant chief for the West Memphis police.
Police don't expect to charge the homeowner with anything since they don't prosecute self-defense in Arkansas.

The goblin is in critical condition in the local hospital.
