Police were pursuing a suspect in an armed robbery. Meanwhile,
George Richard heard a commotion outside and quickly armed himself
with a firearm to investigate. Just outside the door, police say
Richard found the robbery suspect hunched up and hiding. "Man, you
need to get up and get out of here," Richard told him."Somebody's
trying to kill me" the suspect said. "Well, you still need to leave"
Richard replied. The suspect then tried to enter the home. "Man,
don't come in. I'm gonna have to shoot you," Richard advised. With
the gun in his right hand, Richard pushed the suspect with his left
arm to prevent his entry. But the suspect forced a foot inside the
door, and Richard was forced to shoot him. The homeowner phoned
police, who found the wounded suspect nearby.
