For The Fifth Time In Two Weeks, A Detroit Homeowner Has Killed A Burglar

The criminals in Detroit aren’t getting any smarter, but they are getting a lot deader:

Another Detroit homeowner has shot and killed a burglar, George Hunter reports.

It’s at least the fifth such incident in recent weeks.

Thursday’s shooting happened at about 12:30 p.m. when two men allegedly broke into a home on the 8200 block of Penrod on the city’s west side, Detroit Police Third Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson said.

“The homeowner was able to retrieve his weapon, and fired hitting one of the burglars,” Johnson said. “He ran away and collapsed in the driveway. The other burglar was able to escape.”
