A Memphis homeowner took justice into his own hands and shot two home intruders with an AK-47.
According to WMC, the unidentified homeowner came home and saw the two would-be robbers inside of his home Friday evening. He described the sequence of events to the local news outlet:
“I see my house being ransacked and the dog was still going hysterical in the cage. When he saw me he notified the other individual that was with him, ‘hey, they are here.’”
The two men pulled out their guns while the homeowner grabbed his assault rifle out of the closet and he began to shoot them. Both men died at the scene.
