At about 2:45 a.m., a resident in the home noticed the man attempting to break into his home and shot at the suspect. San Luis Obispo County Sheriff deputies arrived to find the suspect suffering from a gunshot wound.

Medical personnel transported the suspect to a local hospital where he is being treated for his injuries.

Investigators are collecting evidence and interviewing witnesses. No further information is available at this time.


When I was working a tower on the East Side the orders weas to fire a warning shot before firing the stop shot. I used to say if I fire two shots how are they going know which was whic was which.


“If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.” Or that home, anyway.


It’s never legal to “shoot to kill”. The only legal way is to shoot to “stop the threat”. If the criminal dies, so be it, but if you ever tell a prosecutor or jury that you were shooting to kill, unfortunately, you will be charged and spend time in the big house, even if it was justified. I’m glad that this homeowner was able to defend his home and family from a scum bag. It’s too bad that California’s insane gun laws give all the advantages to the criminal and not the homeowner.


exercising his 2nd amendment rights out of necessity to protect his family. Police aren’t there to stop most crimes as they are occurring. When it comes to protecting your family and your property at 2:45 AM, you are 911. Good job homeowner.

Good. Did he use a 38 special or is that just the pic?


Let them get inside before you open fire and then empty the clip.


But wait for the lawsuit to be filed by the criminal who was shot…… thanks California


Finally some news we can enjoy. Suspect gets shot by victim.


If you are going to shoot in this situation, shoot to kill. Now the shooter faces a potential lawsuit against him by the burglar. Happens all the time.
