Chief Tango sends us a link to today’s feel good story from Oklahoma. The homeowner called the police when he heard someone break into his house;
“The homeowner advised dispatch, who was still on with 911, that he had just shot the suspect who had broken the back door,” said Owasso Police Capt. Tracy Townsend.
Police say [44-year-old Timothy] Wall was shot in the thigh and taken to St. John Hospital in Tulsa.
Neighbors say Wall suffers from a mental condition, but they understand the homeowner had to do something to protect himself and his family.
“At one point is, you’ve got to understand the guy [is] delusional there and doesn’t understand what he was doing, but on the other side you’ve got to understand that the homeowner–you don’t know what the guy is seeing, so he had to defend himself there, and his wife, at the time,” said neighbor Eric Hamblin.
