Your Self-Defense Story of the Day

Guns are the great equalizer for many intended victims of crime

Police responded to a call where a woman told them someone was acting oddly on her property – rolling around in the yard and pounding on her door. Another 911 caller said a man, who appeared to be very intoxicated, was hiding in one person’s bushes and knocking on another’s door.

While driving around the neighborhood after that call, officers said they found another person who told them he was looking for his “very intoxicated friend who was causing problems.”

Police said that’s when they heard gun shots.

When police got to the home they saw the homeowner applying pressure to a gunshot to Claunch’s neck. The homeowner, who is in his 70s, told police the man approached while he was doing yard work and punched him in the back of the head.

The homeowner said the man continued to beat him and even “mounted” him to hit him.

The man who was shot has since died.
