Thug Makes FATAL Mistake and Attacks Elderly Couple's Home: Homeowner Is a 2A Patriot
Intruder shot dead after attacking armed homeowner who knew his Second Amendment rights
One thug made a fatal error of judgment when he decided to trespass on an elderly couple's property and threaten the occupants - little did he realize that the homeowner knew his Second Amendment rights and was all too willing to exercise them.
Police said the Louisiana couple got a motion alert from their home security system early Wednesday morning.
According to local news station KTBS-TV, they noticed on their system that someone was hopping the fence of their Shreveport home.
The male resident wasn't taking any chances and stepped outside to confront the trespasser in the backyard, cops said.
As KTBS noted, the homeowner did what any law-abiding citizen should do - he put his God-given Second Amendment rights into action by arming himself with a gun.
The intruder's poor judgment now meant he only had seconds left to live.
It isn't clear whether the intruder knew that the resident facing him down in the middle of the night had a gun on him or not.
However, what the trespasser allegedly did next appears to indicate a belief that he had the upper hand in the situation.
The intruder allegedly made a threatening move toward the resident, KSLA said.
Naturally, the resident feared for his life and fired two shots at the trespasser, striking him at least once, KSLA added.
Officers were called to the scene in the 3300 block of West Caperton Street in the Queensborough neighborhood just before 1:30 a.m., KSLA said.
Medics responded shortly afterward, the outlet noted.
However, the intruder — identified as 33-year-old Darnell D. Smith — was dead, and a coroner and detectives were called to the scene, according to KSLA, which referred to Smith as the "victim" in its headline.
No charges were filed, according to KSLA.
Police said the intruder's pants were found on the fence, which supports the resident's claim that Smith had been trespassing, KTBS noted.
Thankfully the couple was unharmed in the ordeal.
And because the homeowners were prepared for an invasion, the only body taken away in the coroner's vehicle was the intruder's.
