[Video] New Orleans Homeowner Shoots and Kills Armed Home Invader, Defending Three Children
|Incident at a Glance|
|# of Suspects:||1||Shots Fired:||Unknown|
We have another defensive gun use out of the Creole State today, and three children are safe because their father chose to exercise his Second Amendment right.
According to WDSU,
“I would have done the same thing,” said Larry Levy, a neighbor. “He was protecting his family.”
According to a news release from the New Orleans Police Department, a 28-year-old man and his 36-year-old wife were sitting on their backyard patio when a masked gunman approached and demanded money. They say the gunman ordered the couple into the home where three female children, ages 6, 13 and 14, were inside.
That’s when, investigators say, the husband retrieved his gun and shot the suspect, fatally wounding him. The gunman was pronounced dead on the scene.
This just goes to show, even when doing something as mundane as enjoying some downtime on your porch, you still need to remain vigilant.
No charges are expected against the homeowner and there is no apparent link between the family and the suspect.
