A Kansas homeowner heard a noise in his home around 4:30am, grabbed his gun and went to investigate.

The homeowner encountered an intruder during his investigation and ordered him to the ground at gunpoint.

The suspect complied.

The homeowner was able to hold the suspect at gunpoint until police arrived.

From KSL.com,

“The homeowner was able to hold him there at gunpoint until officers got there,” Sgt. Sam Despain with the St. George Police Department said. “It worked out great for that homeowner and for us. We were able to make an arrest, no property was stolen and no one was injured or hurt; it was a great story.”

“We are incredibly grateful for this homeowner and what he did,” he said. “It was brave and it was a great conclusion to what could potentially have been a very bad situation.”

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