A 70-year-old homeowner in Kingsport, Tennessee shot an intruder attempting to break into his home Sunday morning.
According to the Kingsport Times-News, the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office received a report around 2:00 a.m. of a burglary and shots fired at a home located on Happy Hill Road.
Police arrived and discovered the homeowner uninjured.
As the homeowner described it, the incident began when he was awakened by somebody shining a light into his bedroom window. He looked and saw a man standing outside. The suspect then broke the bedroom window and began climbing inside.
At that point, the homeowner told police he grabbed a gun and opened fire on the suspect. The man fell from the window, ran into a dark vehicle and sped off.
The Kingsport Times-News says police were still on the scene when they got word that a man — identified as 44-year-old Jason Scott McClellan — had arrived at Holston Valley Medical Center with gunshot wounds. He is expected to recover.
