A 78 year old Kentucky homeowner said he was ready when 2 young men broke into his home around 4am. The elderly cancer survivor says he has always slept with a loaded pistol under his pillow. When he saw two men from his bedroom window he grabbed the gun. A moment later he heard his front door kicked in and then heard the men coming straight for his bedroom. The homeowner fired shots from the pistol striking one of the men. He then retrieved a shotgun and fired at the second home invader, who has come back after initially being scared off by the pistol shots.
One of the home invaders is being treated at Vanderbilt hospital for gunshot wounds and will be charged in the home invasion once he is well enough. The second intruder remains at large.
