Chicago Homeowner Being Charged After Killing Three Intruders
CHICAGO, ILLINOIS — Charges are pending against a homeowner who shot and killed three intruders, but they’re tight-lipped as to what the actual charges are.
The incident in question happened
The homeowner told police three people broke into his home Sunday night through the basement and he acted in self-defense, shooting the alleged intruders before locking himself inside a room and calling police.
When police arrived at the scene at 103rd and south Ewing, they found the bodies of a 22-year-old man, 24-year-old woman and a 17-year-old boy inside.
One was shot in the head, the others were shot multiple times.
Illinois is a state that does not have a ‘Stand your ground’ law on the books, however there are some pending cases to fight it. This could be what the charges are related to, as they could have determined that the homeowner could have retreated to a safe place.
