A Pennsylvania homeowner wasn’t taking chances when he fired at an intruder who was breaking in his home!
Lancaster police are looking into a break in that ended when the criminal, William Louis Stewart, took hot brass to the chest from the homeowner who was protecting himself and his wife.
Fox news reports:
The incident occurred just after 2:30 a.m. on Sunday at a house on the 600 block of Marietta Avenue in Lancaster. Two people were at home when William Louis Stewart, 46, forced his way into the home though the front door. The homeowner upstairs heard his wife scream for help from the first floor and ran to her aid, armed with a gun.
Stewart, holding a piece of wood, started towards the male homeowner when he got downstairs. The homeowner then shot Stewart once in the chest, knocking him to the ground. The homeowners wife then called police.
Through investigation, police found that the homeowner did not know Stewart and that he had no reason to be in the house.
Steward was taken to the hospital by police, where he is being treated for non-life threatening wounds. However, he is being charged with burglary, simple assault, and criminal mischief. I wonder if he will learn his lesson from this incident?
