Armed Citizen® Today A homeowner in Logan, Penn., defended his property when two robbers attempted to force their way into his home on Aug. 14.
In the early morning hours that Friday, the two robbers attempted to force their way into the residence by kicking in the door. The noise alerted the homeowner, who armed himself and shot at the two intruders. After the homeowner opened fire the two robbers fled, and the homeowner called the authorities.
As police where on their way to the residence, they were flagged down by a wounded 17-year-old. The teen told police that he was shot in the wrist and buttocks while walking down the street. After searching the area indicated by the teen, police were not able to find any signs to collaborate the teen's story.
Through their investigation, police put together that the teen was one of the robbers in the attempted home invasion and was struck by rounds fired by the homeowner. The teen was arrested for his role in the robbery. Authorities are still looking for the other robber. (fox29.com, Philadelphia, Penn., 08/14/2020) From the Armed Citizen® Archives August 1984
