Armed Homeowner Stops Would-be Home Invader

He probably thought no one would be in the home-in-question at 10:30 AM on Monday morning. Sheriff: Homeowner shoots, kills man who attempted to break into house.

Highland County is bit far east to really be considered suburban Cincinnati, but that is where it is… about an hour east, with no traffic. It would be considerably longer during rush hour.

According to officials with the Highland County Sheriff’s Office, a man called 911 claiming he shot a man who attempted to break into his home.

That caller said the man came to his home, threatened him, then attempted to break into the home via the rear entrance, authorities said.

The would-be bad-guy died at the scene. The investigation continues.
