Neighbors are calling an 85-year-old man a hero after he managed to shoot one of two burglars in the head after they tried to break into his home. It wasn’t a kill-shot, but it did scare the burglars away and one of them was caught by police:
Some people say that you don’t need a gun because they believe this will never happen to them. But clearly, this proves otherwise. You never know when someone is going to put your life at risk all so they can get something to sell for drug money or whatever.
Kudos to this 85-year-old man. He’s an example for us all.
UPDATE: One of the clown family members of the burglar who was shot in the head tried to intimidate the 85-year-old man known as ‘Dirty Harry’. Here’s the report:
The suspect, 34-year-old Shawn Mulberry from Oakland, was hospitalized in stable condition. A second suspect got away unhurt.
The homeowner, identified only as “Harry” was later visited by on his front doorstep by a relative of Mulberry’s, according to police.
“It’s an intimidation of a witness,” said neighbor Neil Swendsen. “That’s all it is, pure and simple.”
The confrontation led police to station an officer at his home.
