Armed Georgia homeowner catches intruder in the act, shoots him dead as neighbors cook breakfast

A homeowner in Georgia fatally shot a would-be burglar attempting to enter into his home, and a neighbour contacted police when the gunshots disrupted her breakfast, according to authorities.

Shots were fired at 5:30 a.m. Thursday in DeKalb County when an anonymous homeowner shot the unidentified male suspect, who was brought to a nearby hospital but died.

Neighbors in the vicinity, including Melan Sydnor, who was in the process of preparing breakfast, heard the gunshots.

Sydnor told that she was in the kitchen when she heard gunshots. She heard a couple gunshots and then the cops drove up around five minutes later.

Joann Proctor, another local homeowner, said she is on edge because crooks are targeting houses early in the morning.

Young males are roaming the area at night, like 4-5 a.m., checking doors, Proctor said.

The homeowner, who was not identified, was questioned by police and returned home by mid-morning. He will not be prosecuted since he was protecting himself and his house.

“I simply believe it’s a terrible state of things for the nation,” said one anonymous neighbour. “Having a gun was a positive thing in this circumstance.”

The investigation into the incident is continuing. Authorities have not said why the culprit attempted to break into the residence or if the homeowner was targeted.
