A Pennsylvanian music store owner noticed a man enter his store for a few minutes before leaving almost immediately. The suspect went to his car and returned to the store with a type of wooden club. He proceeded to assault the store owner’s wife, hitting her in the head with the club. The assailant turned to the store owner and moved to strike–but before he could attack, the owner pulled out his revolver and fired…killing the intruder.

The owner’s wife is being treated for injuries at a local hospital and expects to make a full recover. Police have yet to identify a motive and are trying to determine if the couple knew the man prior to the attack. The store owner acted in self-defense and will not be charged for the incident.
