NC:Homeowner kills intruder: 'I was fighting for my life'

HICKORY, N.C. – A Hickory man is grateful to be alive after he said an intruder broke down his front door, and tried to beat him and rob him Saturday morning.

Paul Ohle said he was in his kitchen around 9 a.m. when he heard his front door being kicked in. Ohle said the man called for help, but as Ohle reached for his phone, the man wrestled it out of his hands.

He “put me in a headlock, drove me to the floor,” said Ohle. “That's when the battle ensued.”

As the two men wrestled, Ohle said he reached for a single-shot shotgun he keeps by the door. The man grabbed it from him and beat him with it.
