IL: Armed Homeowner Shoots two Intruders; Police Checking for FOID
An attempted robbery early Friday involving a Springfield homeowner who shot two intruders wasn't a random act, police said.
The homeowner had had an earlier disagreement with the two men before they allegedly broke into his home in the 1700 block of East Stuart Street about 2:20 a.m., according to police.
Detectives were still conducting interviews Friday afternoon, but criminal charges are expected to be filed against the two men who were shot, police said. Both were hospitalized in what authorities described as stable condition.
