Whoa, Maynard: Home Intruder Shot by Homeowner

A home intruder in north Columbus, OH was shot early Saturday when residents of a home on Maynard Avenue heard someone breaking in via their front door at approximately 3AM, Columbus Division of Police said.


One of the men inside the house went downstairs to check what was going on. Two suspects forced the door open and pointed a gun at him, and he started to run back upstairs.

Police say the second resident heard what was going on and grabbed his shotgun, left his bedroom and moved towards the stairwell. When he saw one of the suspects, identified as 28-year-old Tony Kendrick, he fired his gun and hit Kendrick in the arm.

Kendrick and another unknown suspect fled the scene.

Kendrick was arrested after he was located at the hospital.
