Marine defends family from crazed intruder, The Gaston Gazette, Gaston County, N.C. May 14, 2012

Monday, May 21, 2012

A Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune was at home with his family in Jacksonville, N.C., when a naked man, who was high on drugs, started walking up and down the street shouting that he was on a “bad trip.” After the family turned on a porch light, the naked man approached the Marine’s house and began demanding that the Marine and his wife let him inside. The Marine refused, locked the door, and retrieved a 1911 pistol. At first, the crazed man tried to knock down the front door, but he eventually moved on to a nearby screened window, which he punched out and dove through headfirst. The Marine responded by shooting and killing the home invader.

After reviewing the case, District Attorney David Lee announced, “The occupants of the residence were justified in using deadly force against [the intruder] because the actions of [the intruder] caused the occupants to reasonably believe it necessary to use deadly force to protect their lives.” (The Gaston Gazette, Gaston County , N.C. May 14, 2012)
