When a burglar in Georgia broke into the 2nd story window of a house he thought that no one was home. But the homeowner was also a gun owner, and when he heard a noise in his house he grabbed his gun before grabbing the phone.
According to wsbtv.com, Wayne Milner was attacked by the home invader as he was on the phone with a 911 operator. It was then that the crook bit Milner’s ear in an attempt to grab the gun and get away.
“I get up, walk into the hall, and I see a male sitting on the floor going through my wife’s jewelry box,” Milner said.
Milner said he immediately grabbed his gun and confronted the strange man.
“I said, ‘If you make one move I’m gonna blow your head off’,” Milner recounted. “He was shaking, he was very shaken.”
Milner said he left his cellphone in another room, so he escorted the suspect at gunpoint down the stairs to his kitchen so he could call 911.
“He came around the corner and hit the gun just like that and there was a struggle,” Milner said.
He showed Petchenik cuts and bruises he suffered during the ensuing fight. Milner said at one point the suspect bit his ear in an attempt to get to the gun.
“It put my life in danger and also his,” he said. “I could have killed him or he could have killed me and got the gun.”
Sandy Springs police arrived quickly to the home.
“Fortunately for us, officers quickly flooded the area and a short time later a K-9 officer pursued the subject,” said Sgt. Ron Momon.
Momon said the teen asked to apologize to Milner, claiming he thought nobody was home at the time.
“I accept his apology because I didn’t want to shoot anybody,” Milner said.
Another crook with a prior record is off the streets because of a gun owner. This is another instance where a gun owner stopped a crime and never even had to fire a single shot, although he could have and would have been well within his rights to do so.
