Northland homeowner with shotgun kills intruder after string of carjackings, break-ins
A Kansas City, North man awoke abruptly early Wednesday when he heard two loud bangs in his garage, directly beneath his bedroom.Hmmm. Heard noises, went to investigate. Minus points for not calling police, but plus points for grabbing a tool for self defense. He had amazing self-control, in that he refrained from shooting the goblin even as they struggled over the gun. It wasn't until the guy reached for something in his jacket - that the homeowner very reasonably assumed was a gun - that he pulled the trigger.
He grabbed his shotgun, ran down the stairs and opened the door to the garage to investigate while his wife and 18-month-old baby stayed upstairs, according to neighbors and police.
Note to goblins: Don't want to get shot? Don't struggle with the armed homeowner and then reach into your jacket pocket like you're going for a weapon. I mean, obviously, if you stay the hell out of houses that aren't yours, it's a non-issue, but if you simply must break into houses, drop to the ground in the fetal position and moan "please don't kill me" when challenged.
If you plan on fighting someone holding a shotgun, don't be surprised when multiple holes appear in your torso.
Dead Goblin Count: 434
That is all.
