Bobby Lee and his two-year-old daughter Zoey were asleep in their Laurel County, Ky. home, when a trio of criminals broke into the house. One of the intruders made it into Lee’s bedroom, at which point Lee retrieved a gun, fired it, striking one of the burglars, and chased all three criminals from the home. The home invaders made it to their getaway SUV, but when it broke down Lee ordered all of them out of the vehicle and held them until police could arrive.
Lee bought his firearm after a previous burglary and practiced with it several times in order to be prepared for just such a scenario. When interviewed by local media, Lee noted, “I’m happy I protected my family. That is something you can take pride in.” (WKYT, Lexington, Ky. 02/09/12)
