A 67-year-old man was at his home in New Haven, Conn. when he heard a suspicious noise. The homeowner went to investigate, first spotting a screen that had been forced open, then a naked intruder. A struggle ensued, during which the homeowner was able to retreat to another floor and retrieve a handgun. The homeowner then went back to confront the criminal and ordered the man to leave. When the home invader refused, another altercation ensued, during which the homeowner shot the criminal in the chest.
The home invader was taken to a local hospital where he is listed as in critical condition. (The Milford Mirror, Milford, Conn. 07/23/12, The New Haven Register, New Haven, Conn. 07/27/12)
