Through the initial investigation deputies said an adult and juvenile entered a 79-year-old’s home on Hobbs Street around 3 a.m.
The homeowner shot at them. The suspects were transported to the hospital. They are both in critical condition, deputies said.
That quote is wrong in one respect. He didn’t shoot “at” them. He shot them. Hence the critical condition.
If you break into homes, you will eventually find an armed resident. You should not be surprised by the outcome.
