Don’t mess with a vet!
From ABC7: HESPERIA, Calif. (KABC) — A homeowner shot a man who was allegedly trying to break into his Hesperia home Thursday night, and the intruder is now in critical condition.
Hesperia deputies responded to reports of a burglary in progress on Ponderosa Avenue near Chestnut Street around 10:30 p.m. Responding deputies found the suspect, 36-year-old Michael Goode, down on the front yard of the home and suffering from a gunshot wound.
The suspect tried to gain entry through the front window of the house. The homeowner armed himself when he heard the break-in occurring, and as the suspect tried to enter the residence, the victim fired his weapon, police said.
The homeowner was not hurt. Goode was taken to the hospital in critical condition.
“As long as you protect your family and yourself, I don’t see anything wrong with it,” said neighbor Jesus Mejia, who also said the homeowner is a Vietnam veteran.
He said the gunshot sounded like an explosion. He went outside to see what was going on and found the intruder on the ground in front of his neighbor’s home, asking for help.
Goode was arrested for a parole violation two months ago and was let out of jail four days ago. He’ll likely be back behind bars if he survives, authorities said.
As for the homeowner, it appears he will not be facing charges.
“We’re glad when any homeowner protects themselves, that’s what they need to do in these situations,” said Hesperia Police Sgt. Marc Bracco. “That’s why you’re allowed to carry a firearm in your residence.”
Police said the incident was one of two involving an intruder and an armed resident in the area that night.

Happy Ending: Convicted felon shot dead by homeowner during Nashville home invasion

And a good example of why one chooses to have firearms in strategic locations throughout their home.
From Fox17: NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WZTV) — Metro Police have identified the alleged robber shot by a homeowner during a home invasion in Hermitage on Wednesday night. Terry Adams, Jr., 27, of Ashland City, Tenn., died overnight. Adams is a convicted felon out of Cheatham County and Nashville.
Police say the 43-year-old homeowner was away from his Richard Lee Circle residence when two “strange men” entered through a back door and struck his wife. The homeowner arrived to find the back door open and walked into the kitchen where he was struck on the head with a “blunt object,” causing a skull fracture.
The man was ordered to open his gun safe and the robbers took three long guns and a pistol. During this time, the wife fled to a neighbors house and the two suspects left with the guns.
Police said the homeowner, unsure of where his wife went, got a pistol out of another room and headed outside where he again met the robbers. During an altercation, police said the homeowner fired at the suspects, fatally striking Adams.
The second robber dropped the guns and fled. He remains on the run. The homeowner is currently being treated in the hospital.
Police said the same Hermitage home was burglarized on Feb, 6 and a flat screen TV was taken. Adams is a suspect in that case.
Adams has been convicted of attempted burglary in Nashville and has several convictions ranging from car theft, to felony theft to aggravated assault in Cheatham County. He also plead guilty last November to two misdemeanors stemming from a felony meth possession for resale and gun charges.
At the time of Wednesday’s home invasion, Adams was wanted on two probation violations.
