Screen Shot 2014-03-25 at 2.25.23 AMA homeowner in Illinois refused to be a victim when he shot Michael Huston, 26, after Huston allegedly broke into his home.

Huston’s wounds are not life threatening and according to The Beacon News, he is facing charges following his release from the hospital,

An intruder shot by a homeowner after breaking into a home near St. Charles was charged with residential burglary after being released from the hospital, police said.

Michael Huston, 26, faces one count of residential burglary and one count of possession of burglary tools, both felonies, according to the Kane County Sheriff’s office.

Huston is in custody at the Kane County Adult Justice Center, but court information was not immediately available.

The homeowner did possess a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification Card. For people in most other states, that is a card that you are required to have in Illinois simply to own a firearm.

The incident occurred in the 38W000 block of Mallard Lake Road, St. Charles Township, Illinois.

This is the 19th defensive gun use we’ve documented in the state of Illinois and the 1,093rd defensive gun use we’ve documented overall.
