Homeowner shoots suspect trying to get into his house

WMC Action News 5 reported on Wednesday that a Memphis homeowner shot an intruder who broke into his home in the middle of the night. The report noted:

A home invasion suspect is at Regional Medical Center in critical condition after police say he broke into a home in the 2000 block of Range Line Road, and the homeowner caught him.

“We heard glass bust and then we heard shooting,” neighbor Melisha Davis said.

Police say a man broke into a house while the family was sleeping just before 2 a.m. Wednesday.

The homeowner woke up to find the intruder in his house and shot him in the head.

“For it to be on a main street like this–where cars drive–out in the open, that was something shocking to me,” Davis said.

The homeowner and his family talked with police on the scene. No one else was injured.
