A 79-year-old Minneapolis, Minn., man shot a home invader who had
broken into the elderly man's residence late one night. Harvey
Keefe, a World War II Marine Corps veteran, heard someone smash in
his back door late one night. Keefe remained in his locked bedroom
and picked up his .38-cal. revolver as he heard someone making his
way through his house. When the intruder jiggled the doorknob to
Keefe's bedroom, the veteran feared for his life and fired his gun.
When the intruder appeared to back off and he heard sounds of
someone leaving, Keefe called 9-1-1 and waited for authorities to
arrive. A suspect suffering from a gunshot wound was found six
blocks from the scene and a trail of blood led back to the house.
Keefe said he didn't regret firing the shot. "I know I've done the
right thing," he said.
