NC: 77-Year-Old Shoots at Tires, not Thieves
The 77-year-old said he wasn't trying to hit them.
Instead, he said he wanted to shoot out their front tires to keep them from getting away.
Channel 9’s Dave Faherty was there when deputies arrived, surrounding, the area and looking for the light grey SUV.
Jewelry, apparently dropped by the thieves as they fled, was in the driveway.
The homeowner, Jerry Townsend, said he told the suspects to stop; when they wouldn't, he began shooting the tires.
