Criminal chooses the wrong home to invade in Inkster

From The Detroit Free PressHomeowner fatally shoots intruder

INKSTER: Homeowner fatally shoots intruder
A homeowner fatally shot a man who broke into his house early Monday, police said.

Two intruders, one of them armed, confronted the 25-year-old man when he got out of bed around 1:20 a.m., and he started fighting with them, Inkster Detective Anthony Delgreco said Monday. He then grabbed his legally registered gun and fired.

A 32-year-old Detroit man was killed, but the second intruder fled, Delgreco said. The homeowner was cut over his eye.

So much for the canard that having a gun to protect yourself just means a criminal will take it from you.
