USA –-(Ammoland.com)- FOX 59 TV reports 09-07-2017 in Warren County, Indiana , Police are searching for two home invasion suspects who they say fled after a Warren County man fired shots at them.

Officers were called to the residence in the 1900 block of West 1050 North near Boswell around 3:30 a.m. on a Tuesday morning.

When authorities arrived, they spoke with the homeowner. He said two men kicked in his side door and entered without permission.

One intruder beat him with a bat but he was still able to retrieve a gun and fire shots at the suspects. The intruders then jumped into a car and fled the area.

Police say nothing was taken from the home and the victim received only bumps and bruises.

One suspect is described as being about 5’10” to 6’0 tall, with a slender build and he was wearing a white t-shirt at the time. No description was provided for the other man according to the Indiana State Police Master Trooper Detective Tim Kendall.


It’s difficult to remember a solid description when you’re being beaten with a bat at 3 in the morning.

Another case where an armed victim, with the sense to keep a firearm in his home, saves himself from being crippled or killed.

Consider for a moment the results if he did not have a firearm available at all.

Good legal comment that the men entered without his permission.

Glad the victim is alright but it sounds like he may need to spend more time at the range to improve his aim.
It’s a shame that the bad guys didn’t need medical attention.
