MS: Homeowner Uses Shotgan to Fatally Shoot Intruder
A man is dead and police said a homeowner shot and killed him as he attempted to burglarize his home. It happened in the 1500 block of Martin Luther King, Junior Drive.
Jackson Police Chief Lee Vance said the homeowner is not facing any charges because he is protected under the Castle Doctrine. "The occupant saw the individual breaking in and went and retrieved what we believe was a shotgun and fired striking the suspect," said Vance.
