USA –-(Ammoland.com)- Cleveland.com reports on 09-21-18 in Cleveland, Ohio, a resident told police he woke up about 2:30 a.m. Thursday to loud noises that sounded like someone was breaking into his home on Lakeshore Boulevard and Landseer Road in the city’s Collinwood neighborhood.

The 68-year-old resident grabbed his shotgun and waited for the burglar at the top of his stairs. The burglar started walking up the stairs and the resident pointed the shotgun at him and said: “I will shoot you,” according to police.

The burglar saw the gun and reacted by running back down the stairs and climbing out of the kitchen window.

The resident did not chase the burglar. He reported that his camera, cell phone and car keys were stolen.

Police say they found the burglar used a screwdriver and hammer to pry open a kitchen window and climbed inside the home.

He left those tools on the front porch. Police collected them as evidence.


Perfect! The resident did everything right. Waited at the top of the stairs where he has some cover.

As the intruder moved up the stairs, he warns him with clear, direct commands.

When the intruder reacts to the warning by fleeing, the resident does not pursue but rather calls 911 and waits for the cops.
