This intruder decided to break into the house of his former boss, but he didn’t expect to be greeted by an armed man ready to protect his family and home.
In Shelby County, TN, a man who was shot by a homeowner has died at a local hospital.
Deputies say 20-year-old Rashawn Calvin tried to break into a house Saturday night on Jonesy in Southeast Shelby County.
Once inside, the homeowner shot him several times, including once in the head. So it looks like the homeowner spent some time at the range.
The intruder was not armed when he entered the home, but police did find a weapon in his car. In this car there was also another man who reportedly did not know his friend was about to break into a house and is currently not being charged.
The homeowner and intruder knew each other from a moon bounce business the homeowner ran when the burglar worked for him.
Police say the homeowner will not face any charges because he used deadly force to protect himself and his son from harm.
“When you enter into a home illegally or forcibly, you don’t know what’s waiting for you on the other side either,”
advised spokesman Chip Washington.
Washington says, in general, if you believe there is suspicious activity going on in or around your home, call for help.
In this case, the homeowner didn’t think he had time and did what felt he needed to do.
“I don’t want people to feel like we live in a police state but at the same time we all do have a right to protect ourselves and our belongings. Fortunately no one else was hurt in this situation,” said Washington.
