A Father Protects His Children

Which is what parents are supposed to do. Homeowner shoots burglary suspect in Randolph County.

“It’s not something I wanted to do, but I’m a family man, I’m going to take care of my kids, I’m going to protect them in any situation I have to,” [Alex] Davis said.

A guy he didn’t know was trying to break in. He sent his kids to a back bedroom and grabbed a shotgun. He told the guy to leave; the guy didn’t leave.

“He lunged and lunged two or three more times, and that one time he was almost in and I had no choice but to just pull the trigger,” Davis said.

The guy was taken to a local hospital and released into police custody. Charges include felony breaking and entering, and entering to terrorize. (That last is something I’ve never seen before.)

Self-defense is a human-right. Good Guys 1, Bad Guys 0.
