Imagine you’re in your 20’s, you’re bringing your girlfriend back to your home, but when you get there you encounter 4-5 armed men.
This is exactly the situation that a Wynnfield Heights, PA couple found themselves in on Wednesday night.
According to ABC Action News 6,
The man confronted the intruders and a scuffle followed. It ended with one of the burglars dead shot in the head.
When police arrived they found the deceased suspect in the front bedroom on the second floor.
The 22-year-old man who lives there suffered a gunshot wound to the leg. His 26-year-old girlfriend was unharmed.
Police have not yet identified the man who was shot and killed.
It is currently unclear if the homeowner was carrying a firearm, accessed his firearm inside the home, or gained control of one of the suspect’s firearms at this time.
This story should also illustrate the fact that it’s becoming far more common for bad guys to travel in packs. This only highlights the need for standard capacity magazines in a defensive situation.
