A homeowner, who had been the victim of a burglary the day before, was at his house in Renton, Wash. when there was a knock at the door. Shortly after the knock, the homeowner heard someone inside the home, retrieved a gun and waited upstairs. When the home invader approached the homeowner’s position, the homeowner fired three times, causing the intruder to flee.
When interviewed by local media, the homeowner had a message for would-be criminals, stating, “They need to watch out. They need to stop what they are doing. If they want to earn some money, find a job… They are playing with life or death for them.” (KCPQ, Seattle, Wash. 04/11/12, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, 04/11/12)
