Homeowner explains why he shot mud-covered intruder after the man left his house


From WWW.THEBLAZE.COM

A Jacksonville, Florida, homeowner told WJAX-TV he was worried about his safety and his neighbors’ safety when he shot a mud-covered intruder who broke into his residence and then departed from it Wednesday morning.

“He just looked like he was possessed, and he was acting like he was possessed,” William Kerr told the station.

Kerr told WJAX that his wife was leaving for an appointment when he encountered the intruder inside his home office.

“I got the door open about a foot, and I see this guy standing there,” Kerr recounted to the station. “He’s got my … BB rifle – he’s standing there with the rifle like this, the butt facing me, and he’s fixing to clock me … I quick slammed the door, and I heard him messing with the other door in the room. So I’m thinking, ‘Oh, man, Tina’s out there in the car fixing to go.’ So, I ran through the kitchen, grabbed me a cleaver, and went out the door. By the time I went out the door, he’s already at the mailbox.”

Kerr — now armed with a gun — followed the intruder down the street because he was worried about his neighbors, WJAX reported.

“I got a next-door neighbor with a little kid,” he explained to the station. “The lady across the street is kind of elderly.”

Kerr saw the intruder again while heading farther down the street, adding to the station that the man had broken off a piece of a privacy fence — and Kerr called out to the intruder: “Come on out … the police officers are driving up the street; they’ll be here in just a second.”

The man was holding “this big stick – it’s probably three or four inches around and about three feet long, and he wields the stick,” Kerr recalled to WJAX. “Well, I jump back … I had my gun, I tried to shoot him in his hands to get the stick out of his hands. About that time a police officer drives down the street, and I wave him down. I’m like, ‘He’s right here!’” Kerr added to the station that the intruder still tried to run…. (Read more)
