As reported, a Wellington, FL home owner shot a violent home invader in self defense. Just before 11PM on Thursday, a home owner was in his house on the 1400 block of 12th Fairway when two men broke in.  The home owner told police that the home invaders attacked him, and that a struggle ensued.  The home owner was able to shoot one of the criminals in the chest, at which point both criminals fled.  A suspect with a gunshot wound to the chest was found at a nearby hospital, and is expected to live. Police continue to search for the second suspect.  The home owner was unharmed.

This is yet another one of the countless cases where an armed citizen was able to defend themselves against criminals, and yet another reason to own a gun for self defense.
