That sounds about right. Deputies: South Carolina Homeowner shot man trying to steal his guns
Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said in a news release that the homeowner fought with 27-year-old Justin Smith and managed to get a rifle from him and fired several shots at the intruder.
Either the police or the reporter (or both) are hoping that self defense isn’t legal, and that they can charge the homeowner. I suppose the legal theory is that you just let criminals have all the guns they want.
