A 70 year old Bakersfield man shot a burglary suspect Wednesday and held him until police arrived. The man tried to get up repeatedly, but the homeowner made him stay put.
The home’s residents who were a man, woman, and their grandson had returned home from an errand when their grandson saw a light on in the lower floor bedroom. The man’s wife looked in the bedroom and found things out of place. The grandson went outside and found a garbage bag lying where a window screen had been torn out of a window. There was money and jewelry in the bag.
Inside the home, the male homeowner kicked open the bedroom door, which was partially closed. The door hit the burglar. The home invader pointed a rifle at the homeowner. But, the homeowner was holding his own gun and fired. The bullet went through the door, hit a mirror, and went into a wall. The home invader hit the floor and tried to get up.
Meanwhile, the homeowner’s wife called 911. Police arrived in minutes when seconds count, and found suspect John Garner, who had drugs on him and who was wanted on a misdemeanor warrant. The home invader had taken the rifle from a closet in the home.

A Toledo grand jury declined to indict a resident who killed a home invader. 24 year old Christopher Childress and two friends were caught by the homeowner inside his house. The resident shot five times. Childress was killed and one of his accomplices was wounded. The man killed had no record, but the wounded man had a long criminal history including burglary, breaking and entering, and assault.
In Pueblo, Colorado:
Home Invasion suspect Christopher Rasberry was shot in the leg by a householder after he broke into the person’s home. The victims found a man they did not know on their couch. They shot him in the leg with a .40 pistol. Police found a door that had been forced open.
A teenage burglar was killed after he and a friend broke into a home and woke up the occupant. The pair woke up the householder and duct taped his hands and feet. They were ransacking the house when the home’s other resident arrived home. One of the home invaders shot at him. He returned fire and killed the teenager. The second suspect got away.
A homeowner hear his window break, so he called 911. He picked up his handgun when he saw hands enter the house. That’s when he opened fire and wounded a 30 year old burglar. The thug ran away and was arrested at a hospital where he went for treatment for two gunshot wounds. He will be charged with burglary.
This was the sixth burglary of the residence, and the window the latest thief broke into was the same one that other burglars previously broke into. The homeowner also shot at previous burglars trying to come into the same window.
