A Detroit gun owner shot and killed an intruder who, along with an accomplice, tried to break into his home on Thursday. The second intruder managed to escape with his life and is currently being hunted by police.
The unidentified homeowner told police he heard glass break at around 12:30 p.m. on Thursday. He witnessed a man climbing in through a window — so he armed himself and shot the suspect.
The intruder, identified as a 17-year-old male, collapsed on the driveway and was later pronounced dead due to a gunshot wound to the chest. The other suspect who fled is in his 20s.
Though the homeowner is shaken up over the incident, Dep. Chief Rodney Johnson told WJBK-TV that the incident sends a “message to the criminals.”
That message: “Stop coming into people’s homes unannounced and uninvited. Crime no longer pays in the city of Detroit.”
In the past two weeks, five Detroit homeowners have caught intruders trying to rob houses in the same neighborhood on the city’s west side.

This guy does looks shaken up over this but just what was he supposed to do. Yes he looks like a good fella.
yes Dan. i agree. if it were me i would have done the same thing.
Me too Paul, and I would have nite mares about it too but I guess that is the way it works ya know. That guy did the right thing I think as sad as it is.
And ya know what paul, what this good ole boy did also sends a message to other thieves too as well as to the cops.
At least he was a good shot anyway. Apparently a better shot than the cops are don`t ya think Paul. That also says something I think 😉
Hey Paul and digs, I’d sleep like a baby ridding the world of the kind of vermin who would break into someone’s house and rape your daughter or wife or son for that matter and then steal your I-Pad, prescription drugs and any sense of self worth that you may feel prior to the break in. They try to break into my house I will simply introduce them to their maker.
I agree Millard and Digger. There would be no question in my mind about that.
