An 82 year old homeowner in NY was woken up by his wife, who heard something in his shed late at night.

The homeowner grabbed his shotgun and went to investigate.

Inside the shed, the homeowner found a man behind his tractor.

The homeowner said he was about to shoot, but the man stood up and tried to plead with the homeowner.

The homeowner’s wife called 911 while the homeowner held the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived.

The suspect was booked into jail on burglary charges.

The homeowner had over $1,000 worth of equipment stolen from the same building just three weeks prior.

The homeowner said burglars are taking a tremendous risk with their lives out in the countryside.

This is another great example of a defensive gun use in which no shots were fired, no on was hurt and the bad guy ended up behind bars.
