USA –-(Ammoland.com)- KTVQ TV reports 10-17-2016 in Sheridan, Wyoming, An alleged home intruder was killed after he failed to obey the orders of a Wyoming homeowner who gave him the opportunity to leave.
According to the Sheridan Police Department, officers responded to a home on the 200 block of West 10th Street shortly after 3 a.m. on Sunday.
The Sheridan residence is home to a couple and two children. The woman reported to police that an adult male intruder, who was not known by the couple, entered the home without permission.
The woman’s boyfriend attempted to get the intruder to leave peacefully. When the intruder refused, the resident male armed himself with a shotgun. The intruder still refused to leave the home.
“The male resident felt threatened after exhausting efforts to talk the man into leaving the residence,” police stated in a press release.
The man shot the intruder once in the chest. He was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. The occupants of the home were unharmed and are cooperating with the investigation.
It was determined the intruder entered the home through an unlocked door. The dead intruder was not identified by police until family is notified.
The investigation is ongoing.
Note to stupid burglars. Wyoming is the most armed state in the union. More guns per person than even Idaho or Texas.
If burglaries or home invasions are your chosen career, try a more liberal city or state [read New Jersey] where they disarm the victims for you. Check out areas that practice catch and release so you will be let loose even if captured.
In this case; every opportunity is given to the intruder to just go away. Please go away. Well now he really is gone away and the community is safer!
