A resident in Adair County, Iowa, was on alert when he was awakened to the sounds of glass breaking on June 13, 2022.

The resident was asleep in bed sometime around 4 a.m. that early Monday morning, when the sounds of banging and glass breaking interrupted his slumber. Alarmed by the noise, which he quickly realized as an intruder making entry into the apartment, the resident reach for a firearm nearby and went to investigate.

The resident then encountered an alleged intruder trying to make his way into the apartment through a broken window. In response, the resident fired multiple rounds at the would-be burglar, striking him multiple times in the process and subduing him. When authorities arrived, they found the foiled robber still alive, and he was airlifted to a Des Moines, Iowa, hospital in serious condition. (worldtimetodays.com, New York, N.Y., 06/13/2022)
