A homeowner in Olive Hill, KY fought back against four armed robbers who broke into his home early Saturday morning, leaving one of the suspects dead.
Did he do it with hugs? Love? Empathy? Nope – he protected himself and his family with a gun.
According to Kentucky State Police, Kevin J. Helton, 48, Cindy Puckett, 41, Jonathan Goodan, 45, and Brittany Crouch, 28, broke into a Carter County residence at 123 Clark Hollow shortly after 8:15 a.m. Saturday. After forcing their way inside, state police said the suspects proceeded to rob the home of an undisclosed amount of cash.
But during the armed robbery, an altercation broke out between the homeowner and one of the suspects. According to police, the homeowner was able to secure a weapon and took aim, killing Helton.
The homeowner and other residents of the house, including children, were not hurt in the incident.
