A homeowner in Poulsbo, WA was forced to shoot an intruder after he refused to heed her verbal commands to stop breaking into her house.
The incident unfolded just before 2 a.m. on Sunday in the 16000 block of Highway 305.
Detectives say the female homeowner said she heard someone breaking into her home. She called 911 and then armed herself with a gun. She says she gave the suspect ample warning, but he continued to break into her house. That’s when she fired her weapon.
Deputies found the wounded suspect at the scene and performed CPR until paramedics arrived. The suspect was transported to Tacoma General Hospital with gunshot wounds.
Again, this is another example of how many Americans defend themselves with firearms, and most of those times they do not even fire their weapon, simply being armed drives off many thugs who are seeking easy targets
