    "...late Sunday night at least two people tried to break into a home on Olive Spring Road. A person, described by police as the homeowner, opened fire on the intruders.
    Two ended up getting hit, one of them died. Officers on the scene couldn't give us any information about the condition of the survivor.
    Police remained at the home throughout the overnight hours. No word if the homeowner will face any charges."

    Well, let's hope not, if it was in fact a burglary. Not much information at the time I posted this.

    Don't be breaking into someone's home in the middle of the night and you won't get shot or killed by him or her. The homeowner did a good job but would have been better if he had killed both.

    Hopefully the second one will go room temp very soon to save money and the waste on medical treatment.

    Yeah, this is my burglar negotiation strategy, too.
    Except I think I'll stay in the house.
    My shotgun came out of the gun safe a couple weeks ago
    when The national and state wide emergencies were declared.

    I put on the shorter barrel, and attached a laser and tactical flashlight unit,
    which I do not normally keep on it because this is primarily a sporting shotgun.

    But now it's set up to shoot burglars, EEA03790-54EC-4016-B4FF-8ADDF33CE111.jpeg not orange clay discs.
