Burglar Warned That Homeowner Is Armed, Takes His Chances Anyway. His Day Ended Badly.
CASTAIC, CALIFORNIA — A woman alone at her home heard banging at 2am on her doors and windows. She called 911, but there’s no way that they’d be there in time.
But she was prepared; Armed.
During the phone call, she alerted the man attempting to break in that she was armed. Apparently not caring of this fact, the man continued his illegal entrance into the home.
From The Blaze;
After the suspect entered the home through a rear door, there was a brief confrontation — and then the homeowner shot the suspect once in the chest, the Signal said, citing a release from Deputy Lisa Jansen of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The homeowner used a handgun to defend herself, the paper added.
The suspect — identified only as a Hispanic male in his 40s — was taken to a hospital where he underwent emergency surgery, the Signal said, adding that he was listed in fair condition at the hospital about eight hours after the incident.
The suspect was arrested on a burglary charge, and hopefully won’t be trying to break into any homes again in the future. One can only hope, and we’ll try to not hold our breaths while we wait to see if he gets off easy.
In any event, this woman was prepared and willing to defend herself with lethal force.
