Stock Gun Photo - Tactical 1911A homeowner in Brunswick, GA knew something was up when his doorbell rang, but he saw no one outside. That’s when the homeowner decided to arm himself in case something out of the ordinary was going on.

When the doorbell rang again, the man answered it with his .45 caliber pistol in hand. The homeowner still saw no one outside the door, so he stepped out onto his porch, where he was attacked by a masked man with a knife. The man lunged at the homeowner as he stepped outside.

The homeowner, in response, fired several shots from his pistol at the attacker, who was struck several times in the back and buttocks.

After authorities responded to the situation the injured suspect was transported to a hospital in Savannah, GA for treatment. His current status is unknown.

Based on Georgia law and the details of the story available, it sounds like an open and shut self defense case.

This is the third defensive gun use in Georgia in the last week. The other two are here and here.
