I downloaded the picture used above from a free gif site: https://www.animatedimages.org/img-animated-gun-and-pistol-image-0041-112799.htm

According to police, a homeowner in DeKalb County, Georgia, shot a potential burglar who he saw attempting to break into his home.

At around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, shots were fired when the unnamed homeowner shot the unnamed male suspect, who was later taken to a nearby hospital. The injured suspect eventually passed away, according to internal sources.

Melan Sydnor, a neighbor who heard the gunshots, alerted authorities while she was cooking breakfast.

I was in the kitchen and there were gunshots and it was really loud… I heard a few gunshots and then about five minutes later the police pulled up“, Sydnor told the press.

Joann Proctor, another local citizen who overheard the shots, said that she felt a lot of anxiety regarding the incident and how burglars target residences during the early hours of the morning.

Young guys are stalking the neighborhood at night, like 4-5 in the morning, they checking doors“. Proctor said.

Police questioned the homeowner, who has also gone unidentified. The homeowner eventually went back to his house around midday, unbothered.

He reportedly will not face any charges, since he was protecting his residence and himself.

This is a win for not only the affected homeowner, but also for many other pro-gun advocates in the state who solely own a weapon in case situations like this one were to occur.

I just think it’s a sad state of affairs for the country… In this case, somebody having a gun was a good thing“, said an anonymous neighbor to the press.

According to sources, the investigation into the shooting is still pending. The motive for the suspect’s attempt to enter the house and if the homeowner was a specific target has not yet been disclosed by authorities.
