Police: Homeowner shoots intruder

Police say a central Indiana man shot an intruder who had broken into his home while his family was sleeping.

Anderson police say the 47-year-old man retrieved a handgun after being awoken about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday and confronted the 18-year-old intruder. Police say they scuffled briefly before the younger man was shot once in the back.

Police say the 18-year-old was taken to an Indianapolis hospital but didn't immediately release information about his condition. Investigators were searching for possible accomplices who might have fled the house in a neighborhood south of the city's downtown after the shooting.


EDITORS NOTE:   Remember that just because the suspect was "shot in the back" does not necessarily mean that he was running away or even just standing there harmless.  If someone is "shot in the back" does not necessarily mean the shooter was being cowardly, nor overzealous.  In reality, during a fight, people tend to twist and turn.  And you don't wait for someone to turn back around when they are in the process of attacking you.  If you are defending yourself or your family from an act of violence, weather inside or outside of your home, you have every right to shoot!
