Man in His 80's Shoots Alleged Burglars

An elderly Irvington man defended his life and property when he caught two burglars.

This incident happened Wednesday on Padgett Switch Road in Irvington.

The homeowner discovered two men removing items from his shed, and the homeowner felt threatened, so he whipped out a firearm and defended himself.

One of the burglars ended up in the hospital. The other one is in jail.

Now that they have been shot and shot at, do you think they will change their ways? I hope so!

In the video below from NBC 15 , you'll hear that the elderly homeowner is in his 80's, and still working!
