A Georgia homeowner fatally shot a would-be intruder trying to break into his house – and a neighbor called police after the gunshots interrupted her breakfast, police said.
Shots rang out at about 5:30 a.m. Thursday in DeKalb County when an unidentified homeowner shot the unidentified male suspect, who was rushed to a local hospital but did not survive, Fox 5 Atlanta reported.
The gunshots were heard by neighbors in the area, including by Melan Sydnor, who was in the middle of making breakfast.
“I was in the kitchen and then there were gunshots and it was really loud,” Sydnor said.
Another nearby resident, Joann Proctor, warned, “Young guys are stalking the neighborhood at night, like 4-5 in the morning, they checking doors.”
The unidentified homeowner was questioned by police, but will not be charged, as he was defending his home and himself, the report states.
