The wind whistling through the holes in Steven Christopher Followell gives a whole new meaning to the shooting term “Kentucky windage.”

 A homeowner in Taylor County fought back after police say a man threatened him and then forced his way into his home.

It happened just before midnight Saturday night. Deputies say Steven Christopher Followell went to a home and threatened the homeowner, forcing his way into the home.

Deputies say the homeowner shot Followell sometime during the altercation.

Followell was airlifted to a nearby hospital, suggesting that his injuries are serious, though his condition is unknown. The homeowner did not apparently know the homeowner Followell, suggesting that the attack was apparently random.

As for an explanation of “Kentucky windage” for those not familiar with the term, we turn to the not-always-politically-correct U.S. Army of days gone by.
