OH: Neighbor uses .410 to Stop Break-in
According to Sheriff Joe Browning, Nick Jones, no age verified as yet, had been transported to Holzer Medical Center for treatment before being flown to a Huntington, W.Va., hospital. The weapon used in the incident has been identified as a .410 bore shotgun. Reports suggest the incident involved one neighbor supposedly trying to break into the other’s home, with the shooter trying to prevent the other from entering.
Police reports state the shooting occurred in the 1700 series of Clay Chapel Road. Charles Day, 66, of Crown City, had called the 911 Gallia County Communications Center to report that Jones had allegedly tried to enter his home through a window when Day allegedly fired a shotgun, reportedly striking Jones’ leg.
