Kentucky Self-Defense: Deputies: Hebron homeowner shoots at, collars burglar :: 05/03/2020
The Boone County Sheriff’s Office says a man is behind bars the worse for wear after he tried to burglarize a home and was shot at and collared by the homeowner.
David Whitford, 29, of Hebron, is in the Boone County Detention Center, charged with second-degree burglary and nursing head and facial injuries, the sheriff’s office said in a press release.
The release said deputies were dispatched to the 9200 block of River Road in Hebron about 2 p.m. today for a reported burglary in progress with shots fired.
Deputies arrive to find homeowner subduing suspect
Deputies arrived on scene to find the homeowner subduing Whitford.
After an investigation, the release said, deputies determined that Whitford was attempting to force entry into a home on River Road when he was confronted by the homeowner, who was armed with a handgun.
“As Whitford fled the area on foot towards the riverbank the homeowner fired several warning shots. The homeowner searched for Whitford and located him on his property, bedded down in a wooded area,” the release said.
“The homeowner then fired several more warning shots in close proximity to Whitford, grabbed him and a physical struggle ensued between the two.”
Whitford’s injuries were treated St. Elizabeth Florence Hospital before he was jailed.
The homeowner refused medical treatment.
