This story is yet another illustration of the fact that criminals are becoming more and more bold. You have to be ready to defend yourself in your home regardless of the time of day.

Around 9:50am on Tuesday morning a masked man armed with a handgun broke into a home in Nashville, Tennessee. According to WKRN, this what happened next:  

The homeowner reported to police he was watching TV in his living room while his wife was asleep on the couch when the gunman entered through an unlocked screen door.

The gunman, whose face was masked by a bandana, demanded money and other belongings.

Metro police said the homeowner complied, but the gunman demanded more. The homeowner said as the gunman was “dealing with the wife,” he left the room and retrieved a .45 caliber pistol.

The suspect raised his own gun at the homeowner. Fortunately, the homeowner was able to win the gunfight and strike the suspect multiple times.

The suspect fled the home and collapsed nearby where he was found by responding authorities. The suspect died of his injuries.

This is the 45th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Tennessee and the 1,337th defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.

  1. Unlocked screen door? Like altogether too many Americans, these folks were too trusting of their fellow citizens. Common problem among older folks (such as myself) who remember kinder, safer times. Fortunately, he had a weapon to defend his wife and himself. Not everyone is wise enough to take that precaution.
