A burglar thought that cutting the power of a 72 year old California man’s home would allow him to more easily steal from the home. The burglar was obviously not counting on facing an armed homeowner.

The elderly homeowner told police he fired at the suspect as he tried to enter the home through a window. The homeowner awoke after hearing a pop and realizing his power had been cut off.

Police arrived on the scene to find the burglar, himself a man in his 50’s, suffering from a gunshot wound.

The suspect later died at an area hospital.
