Brent Berkebile, Jr., 21, was in for a rude surprise when he
opened his front door late one evening. He instantly came
face-to-face with an armed man who demanded money. While Berkebile
complied, his girlfriend ran out of the house to summon help at the
nearby house of Brent Berkebile, Sr., who returned with a shotgun.
Berkebile, Sr., fired at the bandit as he attempted to escape from
his son's residence. Police later found the man across the street
in some bushes, alive, but with a gunshot injury to the shoulder.
"It looks like he did what he had to do and nothing more," said a
police spokesman of the elder Berkebile.
