When troopers arrived, their investigation would determine that a 66-year-old male had made a forced entry into the residence with an ax and had also threatened to kill the 55-year-old female homeowner. But, the homeowner brought the home invasion to a halt when she shot and wounded the invader.
The suspect was transported to a local hospital by EMS and underwent surgery for non-life-threatening injuries.
“The Palmer District Attorney’s Office was contacted, and no charges will be filed on the homeowner,” AST reported.
The invader remains hospitalized as the investigation into the incident continues. Charges of Burglary and Assault are most likely.
