Home Intruder: “F*** The Police”, Homeowner Responds By Opening Fire [Video/Details]
A retired firefighter was forced to defend his Los Angeles home when an intruder broke in as he, a woman, and his dog were inside. Reports say that this wasn’t the intruder’s first stop of the night but it certainly was his last!
Investigators on Thursday evening told CBS2/KCAL9’s Rachel Kim that the alleged would-be burglar tried to get into a house one street over on Kerckhoff Avenue.
Authorities told her the man started banging on the door or the Kerckhoff home demanding to be let in and yelling that he lived there. He reportedly said, “Let me in, I live here. I’m trying to get in.”
While he didn’t gain access to the home, he did get the homeowner’s car keys. He drove their red car over to the house on Carolina Street where police believe he gained access through an open window.
Officials said the homeowner told the suspect he would call the police if he didn’t leave. The suspect reportedly replied, “F–k the police.”
Neighbors of the retired firefighter defended his actions.
“We’re friends and he’s very nervous,” says neighbor Ericka Winters, “We are very sorry for him. It’s a really bad thing to happen in the neighborhood.”
TheBlaze said the apparent intruder was shot three times — and when officers arrived after 7 a.m., they found a man in his 20s dead inside the home and signs of forced entry.
Police added to KCBS that the homeowner and apparent intruder got into a physical struggle before the homeowner fired his gun and that it’s not clear if the intruder was armed — no weapon was found on the suspect. Detectives also told the station it’s too early to determine if the shooting was a matter of self-defense.
Thanks to the level-headed thinking of the homeowner neither he, nor the woman and dog were harmed. However, had he not been a law-abiding gun owner there is no way of knowing what might have happened.
The suspect has not been publicly identified by authorities but was confirmed to be dead.
