According to KDRV, A veteran of the Iraq war living in Oregon finds himself facing criminal charges after he used an AR-15 semi automatic rifle to defend his home while a wanted felon tried to break into his back door.
The resident, Corey Thompson, told the suspect who was trying to break in to stop his actions, and then fired a warning shot at the ground. Police say that shot was not warranted and that the intruder was already walking away when the shot was fired.
The following is a real life quote from Medford Police Lt. Mike Budreau. I repeat, this is a real quote.
“[Bullets fired from an AR-15] just don’t hit something and absorb. Especially if it’s something with that high velocity. It could skip off of objects and wind up going into a house, through a wall, through a window.”
Thompson’s AR-15 has been confiscated and Thompson was charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing and Reckless Endangering.
