Fighting Back Against Home Break-Ins

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 05:07 PM CDT

What would you do if you found a stranger breaking into your home?

That's what happened to Lashonne Hunter in Columbus, Ohio. He says he heard his door being kicked in so he grabbed a handgun and went to investigate.

"I got to (the kitchen) and seen the dude standing there," Hunter said.

He didn't know at the time the intruder was also armed, sparking a shootout in the kitchen. Police say about a dozen shots were fired before Hunter escaped out the back of his home.

"I ran and grabbed my daughters and jumped out the window and that was it," he said.

Hunter called 911 but by the time police arrived, the suspected robber had disappeared.

"I think I shot him," Hunter said. "When I pulled the trigger he started shouting, 'ah, ow ow.'"

Police have a vague description of the suspect who was wearing a tan or beige hoodie. He may also be suffering from a gunshot wound. Fighting Back Against Home Break-Ins
