They thought robbing a house sounded like a good idea. They were wrong. 20-year-old man shot and killed by homeowner during burglary attempt, Radcliff police say.
Kobie Long, 20, and another man forced their way into the door of a home on North Wilson Road and were shot by the homeowner, Radcliff Police said.
Long was killed, but the other man is in critical condition at University Hospital.
Radcliff Police Capt. Willie Wells says that the shooting is apparently justified by way of self-defense.
“You have a responsibility to protect yourself and your family in whatever means possible to do that,” Wells said. “So, long as you can articulate that your actions were in defense of yourself or your property, then I think you would be justified.”
Definitely not New Jersey.
Self-defense is a human-right, and in Kentucky, it is your legal right.
