Via WRAL:

 

A Henderson homeowner defended himself against a home invasion Monday morning, shooting an intruder who kicked in his door.

Jonathan Haith said he was sleeping in his home at around 9:45 a.m. when he heard a light knock on his backdoor.

He ignored it at first. Then he heard a louder sound.

“I heard the loud bang in the laundry room area,” he said.

Someone kicked in the door, a Haith grabbed the AR-15 rifle he keeps under his bed.

“I crouched down, grabbed the firearm and was walking up the hallway,” he said. “As soon as I poked my head around the corner I saw a tall male standing there with a gun.”

Haith said he surprised the intruder.

“He shot first, I shot second,” he said. “He missed and I reckon I connected.”

Pandemonium followed, and the intruder scurried out. An apparent getaway vehicle spun out of Haith’s yard to pick up the intruder, who had collapsed outside of a day care up the street.

By that time, Haith had dialed 911.

“Once-in-a-lifetime incident that I hope doesn’t happen again,” said Haith.

According to Haith, both the driver and the shooter were taken into custody. He says the intruder who he shot was last listed in critical condition at the hospital.
