UT: Neighbor uses Shotgun to Subdue Knife-Weilding Suspect

Another man who lives in the area told police that he had heard yelling outside and windows breaking, and "due to previous burglaries in the area, he walked outside with his shotgun" to find out what was happening.

The man said he found Erakrik, who charged at him with a knife, the affidavit states.

"(The man) stated he believed (Erakrik) was going to stab him. (He) explained, in order to protect himself, he struck (Erakrik) with his shotgun a couple times," according to the affidavit.

The man told police that his shotgun was not loaded, which is why he hit Erakrik with the barrel of the gun.
