“The homeowner had just arrived home with his fiancé and 13-year-old daughter when he noticed that one of the windows in his room was broken. Soon afterwards, he heard his daughter screaming upstairs,” he said.
So he did what any legally armed father would do, he grabbed a gun and ran for the stairs. He met the guy coming down, and a fight ensued. The would-be bad-guy grabbed a piece of wood, and the father shot him.
Mbatsane said the suspect tried to escape but succumbed to his injuries in the main bedroom of the house.
