A man was heading to his Dekalb County, Ga. home for lunch when a phone call alerted him to a break-in at his property. When the man arrived home, he went to a back door where he spotted three burglars; prompting him to call 911. While making the call, the three criminals started running towards the homeowner. The homeowner responded by drawing a gun and firing at the burglars, striking one and causing the other two to flee.
When police arrived they detained the wounded criminal, whose injuries are considered non-life-threatening. (The Atlanta Journal Constitution, Atlanta, Ga. 12/16/13)
