A homeowner in GA came home to find a man in his home armed with a shotgun.

The homeowner drew a derringer style pistol he had in his pocket and told the suspect to drop the gun.

The suspect complied and the homeowner picked up the shotgun and attempted to hold the would be burglar at gunpoint until police arrived, but the suspect charged him, so the homeowner shot him once in the chest with the shotgun.

The suspect was taken to an area hospital where he is listed in critical condition.

“I hit him,” said the homeowner. “I knew I did. I meant to.”
