SC: Homeowner Fights, Shoots, Kills, Burglary Suspect
Deputies said the homeowner told them he returned home to find a man in his home, in possession of his property including several firearms. Investigators said the intruder charged at the victim and a fight ensued before the homeowner shot the suspect.
“Deputies were on the scene in less than two minutes and found a male inside the residence with multiple wounds that were consistent with injuries sustained from gunshots,” Chief Deputy Creed Hashe stated. “The owner of the residence was at the scene and initial information reported to the Sheriff’s Office is that the resident returned to the home and found that it had been burglarized. Once inside, the homeowner encountered a male subject and pursuant to a physical confrontation the homeowner fired several shots at the subject inside the house. “
