A 93 year-old homeowner in Springfield, Ohio heard a man knocking on his door shortly before 8:30 p.m. The homeowner went to the door and told the man to leave. Undeterred, the man entered the home through the unlocked back door. The homeowner noticed the intruder was inside his house and retrieved his gun. The homeowner confronted the intruder and once more told him to leave. The intruder instead walked towards the homeowner, who fired, striking the criminal.
The intruder was rushed to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. No charges have been filed against the homeowner.
