Nevada (The Gaslamp Post) – An elderly man who has been a recent victim of burglary has reportedly shot and killed an intruder when it was about to happen again.  The 72-year-old homeowner was ready for them when they burst through his bedroom door.

The man was in his Las Vegas area home Monday when he heard someone breaking in around 7:30 am.  He reportedly grabbed a firearm and prepared for the worst.

According to the man, he fired on one of the intruders as he came through his bedroom door.  After the shot, all of the intruders reportedly fled the home.


Police arrived to find one of the suspects attempting to leave the scene in a car.  Another suspect was found in the man’s backyard, dead from an apparent gun shot wound.  A hand gun believed to have been carried by that man was found near the body.

The third suspect was reportedly seen fleeing on foot.  He was described only as a Hispanic male.  Police are still searching for the suspect.

Police say that the home owner will not be charged.
