Police say the man was asleep when the intruder broke in. When the man woke up and realized what was going on, he grabbed his gun and started shooting.
The burglar was not hit, but he did manage to get away with cash, jewelry and a gun.
“Being asleep at 3:30, 4 o’clock in the morning, he didn’t shoot straight. But I bet you if they had come in when he was awake they wouldn’t be alive.
Police say in this case it is likely self-defense so the man won’t face any gun charges.
