Dad Was Home With His 4-Year-Old Daughter When the Doorbell Rang. Before He Could Answer It, He Realized Something Was Very Wrong
A father in Omaha, Nebraska, was forced to defend himself, his home, and his 4-year-old daughter after he found a man inside his house Monday morning.
Larry Rohatsch told police that he got up to answer the door after someone rang the doorbell. However, before he could even answer it, the suspect was already inside the home. The father reportedly opened fire, fatally striking the suspect.
Police later found the suspect, identified as 48-year-old Darrell Miller, bleeding and shot on the front porch. He was taken to the hospital in critical condition, but he later died from his injuries.
Miller had kicked down Rohatsch’s door to gain entry after ringing the doorbell twice, according to a neighbor. The dad was at home with his 4-year-old daughter at the time.
