A NC homeowner in Transylvania County encountered an intruder in one of his outbuildings.

The intruder was armed with a machete and demanded money from the property owner.

The property owner shot the suspect with .22 caliber ratshot.

The intruder then fled the scene in a van and fled the scene.

No names or further info available at this time.

We only hope that the homeowner was carrying ratshot to clear rats out of his building and not for his primary self defense round.
