These stories aren’t the ones we like to hear about, but thankfully the homeowner is expected to survive.
A brutal struggle resulted in an elderly man being shot with his own gun. An 80-year-old resident faced off with Marcus D. Brown, 40, when brown broke into the older man’s home on May 24, around 11pm.
Both men were shot and both men are expected to survive.
Concealed Nation reports:
The resident grabbed a handgun and shot Brown, but Brown was not stopped.
They began to wrestle for control of the firearm, but Brown was literally half the resident’s age. He got his hands on the firearm, and then shot the resident.
He grabbed the resident’s money, and fled the scene.
He was arrested after he showed up at a local hospital later not that long after the indicent with a gunshot wound.
The victim was also taken to the hospital, but he is expected to survive.
Brown is facing some serious charges, including, according to WSOCTV, “first-degree burglary and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury.”
It’s hard to be an elderly person in a violent confrontation like this. Although this gentleman did everything in his power, he still lost the struggle, and was extremely lucky to survive the attack.
From one gun owner to another, here’s to a quick recovery for the homeowner! May he continue to use his second amendment right to protect himself!
