When a Delaware homeowner and her son came home to their house which was under renovation they found an unwelcome intruder sleeping in one of the bedrooms. After a brief physical altercation the woman was able to get a hold of her handgun and shoot the intruder.
ABC 6 news revealed that the home was supposed to be temporarily vacant at the time, but the intruder woke up to the startling discover that he broke into the home of a gun owner.
After a confrontation, police say, there was a struggle and the homeowner, who was armed with a gun, fired one shot, striking the suspect in the lower body.
The bleeding suspect fled the house on foot and went into a wooded area. A police manhunt began, with dogs and helicopters used in the search.
The suspect was found in a nearby trailer park.
The trail of blood from the suspect’s gun shot wound made it fairly easy for law enforcement to catch up with him. The story could have ended much differently had the homeowner not been armed, but neighbors are praising the woman’s actions.
The woman brought the gun with her Monday morning because the house had been broken into before and was used by some intruders for parties and other activities.
