Missouri Self-Defense: Miller County homeowner shoots intruder :: 08/05/2018

MILLER COUNTY, Mo. - The Miller County prosecuting attorney's office will decide whether or not to file charges against an intruder.

According to the Miller County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to a home in the 100 block of Old Bagnell Road in Eldon, Missouri on Monday, July 23 for a reported shooting.

Deputies said a victim was found with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the arm and was taken to the hospital. 

Investigators told ABC 17 News that deputies learned during the investigation the gunshot victim unlawfully entered the home with a hatchet and made threats toward the owner. 

The homeowner reportedly got into a fight with the person and shot the intruder once they entered the home.

Miller County Prosecutor Ben Winfrey said the shooting was justified based on the preliminary information his office received, but the case is still under review. 

The name of the gunshot victim or what charges that person could face hasn't been released.
