After Robbery He Hid From Cops in the Wrong House

His choice of hiding place didn’t work out too well. Man on the run from police breaks into home and is shot and killed by homeowner – Story | WAGA

He robbed a store. Jumped in the back of a pickup truck. Took off running when police stopped the truck. Decided to break into a house to “hide from the police.”

A short time later, police got a call about a home invasion just around the corner. Investigators said MacDonald had broken into a house and encountered a young man with a shotgun.

“He held the shotgun on MacDonald and was yelling and screaming ‘What are you doing here? What are you doing in my house?’” said Capt. Ireland.

Investigators said the young man’s father heard his son’s cries for help, and grabbed his handgun.

One shot to the chest with the handgun, and the story ends.

Self-defense is a human-right. This also illustrates the old truism: Live by the sword, die by the sword. (Though in this case life by the knife, die by the handgun….)
