Another Bad Guy Learns The Hard Way After Being Shot In The Neck By The Person He Was Trying To Rob
KANAWHA COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA — A homeowner critically shot a burglar in the neck after the burglar attempted a broad daylight home invasion on his property.
The burglar’s condition and status is not immediately available but the extent of his injuries would predicate some serious medical attention.
According to WOWK Tri-state News 13, the burglar broke in around 4 p.m. The homeowner was home at the time and able to retrieve his gun. The burglar was shot in the neck and immediately retreated from the scene.
By the time Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office responded, the suspect had already fled the residence and retreated to a nearby building where it is believed he was taken into custody.
When seconds matter, having a gun nearby can be the difference between being a victim and survival. This homeowner was able to defend himself because he was armed with a gun. That makes things a lot easier rather than having to fight a burglar with some improvised tool.
