Two teenagers reportedly broke into a home in Louisville, Kentucky, on April 20, killed the family’s dog and then ran into the armed homeowner.
“Pop, pop, pop! And there was a pause, and then, pop, pop!” said the family’s neighbor, Charles Graham, who overheard the homeowner shooting the two, Mad World News reports. “And then a couple seconds later, [one of the teenagers] was running down the street saying his brother got shot.”
The male homeowner shot one of the teenagers in the leg and the other in the back. Police had no information about their condition.
Police arrived to find one still at the residence while the other was found a few streets away.
A few weeks before the incident, other teenagers had reportedly tried to burglarize the same home but neighbor Gary Dickman scared them off.
Dickman says the recent burglaries are encouraging many locals to install security cameras in their homes.
“I mean, it’s a shame that you have to protect your house like that, but someone comes in your house like that while you’re home, then I guess you have that right,” Dickman said.
