The night did not work out the way the would-be bad guy planned it. LaPlace homeowner shoots, kills suspected home intruder: sheriff | NOLA.com
He heard voices in his backyard, which was fenced, so no one should have been there.
Sheriff Mike Tregre said a surveillance video of the incident shows the suspect ‘bumrushed” the home owner.
“The subject just rushed into him, trying to force his way in,” Tregre said. “The home owner opened fire, striking the intruder.”
He was shot once in the abdomen and died in a local hospital.
The surveillance video and evidence – which includes a firearm recovered at the scene – indicates this was a case of lawful self-defense. Police are still looking for the other individual
