Criminal Justice Quote: Intruder Shot and Killed in Detroit Suburb by Homeowner

     Startled awake by a noise at the back of her home on January 29, 2015, a suburban Detroit woman woke her 74-year-old husband who in turned grabbed his handgun and headed toward the sound to find out what was going on…The homeowner came fact-to-face with--and was forced to shoot--an armed intruder.

    The burglar had entered the home through a window…He died at the scene.

     Southgate, Michigan Public Safety Director Thomas Coombs told a reporter with The Detroit News: "Based on the information we know presently, a grand jury would find the shooting justified. He was protecting his life."…

     Dewey Thompson, who has lived near the couple for more than a decade, told a local TV reporter that this intruder "won't break into anybody else's house. That's how I feel about it. I don't care."...
