A suspected robber is dead Monday morning after being shot by the 92-year-old man whose home he broke into overnight, according to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

The identity of the deceased 24-year-old man has not been released, but police say he was one of three men who broke into the Verona home of Earl Jones shortly after 2 a.m. Monday.

Jones, 92, told police that he heard noise in his basement on Violet Road at 2:10 a.m. and armed himself with a .22 caliber rifle. At about 2:25 a.m., an intruder walked up from the basement and opened the door to the first floor. At that point, Jones told police, he fired his weapon.

    Hahahaa! Guess little thug boy didn’t figure that a 92 year-old man with a .22 rifle has probably got a whooole lot more practice under his belt than the perp has at robbing houses… er had, lmao, too bad for him. Anyone wanna bet that it was probably a standard subsonic lead round nose bullet which ended his miserable life?

    I hope the police resisted the urge to steal his firearm from him like they normally do to law abiding citizens, he clearly deserves the chance to shoot more thugs for us. Kudos, sir!
