That dreaded “bump in the night” came recently for a Missouri homeowner, who answered the call bravely. But his response, though warranted, nearly turned fatal, when a burglary suspect opened fire before finally fleeing the scene.
Terry Logan received an alert from his home security system that someone lurked outside, according to stltoday.com. The alert occurred around 1 AM, so Logan grabbed his pistol and charged outside. There he found a man rifling inside one of his vehicles.

“My mind immediately went to my girlfriend, my 3-year-old daughter and my 14-year-old daughter who were home,” Logan said, according to stltoday.com.
Footage shows Logan, gun drawn, walk across his driveway, pistol pointed at the suspect. He made it clear he was ready to put the man down if he didn’t comply.
“You picked the wrong (expletive) house, my man!” Logan yells in the video. “I suggest you get on the (expletive) ground.”
“We’re making it easy for them,” Marshak said, according to stltoday.com.
Meanwhile, Logan escaped injury, even though a bullet came dangerously close to striking him. “I didn’t expect to get shot at,” he said, according to stltoday.com. “So I’m just glad today that I’m alive.”
