Around 4 a.m., Ronald Sleisher was awakened in his home north of Neosho Rapids, Kans., by the sound of banging at the door and breaking glass. Sleisher retrieved a gun, went to investigate and discovered two intruders. Sleisher fired at the pair, striking one. The homeowner then held the other burglar at gunpoint until police could arrive.
The wounded home invader was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. (KVOE, Emporia, Kans. 01/02/13)
