An Arizona man shot and killed a home invader after the intruder charged him with a piece of wood on Wednesday evening. Scottsdale police were called to a home on the city’s northeast side just before 11 p.m. on a shots fired call. Homeowner Aaron Latowsky, a local urologist, was working on his property when his dog Sadie began barking inside the home. He told Fox 10 in Phoenix that it was a little unusual for the pooch to behave that way, so he decided to check things out.
“So I came inside, and I saw one of our side doors was open and she was barking down the hall towards my kids’ bedrooms,” said Aaron.
The rest of the family was asleep at the time. Right away, LaTowsky says he grabbed his shotgun.
“We never would have known,” said Aaron’s wife, Brenda LaTowsky. “We would have continued to sleep and sleep through it. so I’m just so thankful.”
LaTowsky went into his daughter’s room, where he says the suspect came out with a large piece of wood, his face masked and his body naked.
LaTowsky says as the naked stranger lunged at him, he fired twice. Both shots hit the intruder, who dropped to the ground. Paramedics were unable to revive the suspect, but LaTowsky and his family were uninjured.
