A homeowner in Washington fatally shot a man who tried to break into his home Friday, authorities said.

Deputies with the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department received a call from someone saying a man was trying to break into his home and that he had shot him. When they arrived, they found a 36-year-old man dead on a back porch, authorities said.

The homeowner was taken into police custody.

Investigators later learned the deceased man and his girlfriend lived next door. The couple had an argument and the woman went to the neighbor’s home, authorities said.

The woman had an active no-contact order against her boyfriend, police said. The man who was shot and killed attempted to break into the neighbor’s home before he was shot, officials said. He also made threats against the people inside, including his girlfriend.

The shooter was grudgingly released, and the case will be reviewed for possible charges against him. ‘Cause that’s how they roll.

PD: Homeowner shoots man wielding umbrella in Harrisonburg

Brad Zinn, Staunton News Leader
HARRISONBURG — Authorities said a man remains hospitalized in critical condition after being shot Monday night in Harrisonburg, according to a press release from the Harrisonburg Police Department.

The 36-year-old man was shot in the 1200 block of Greystone Street, where 911 callers had notified police of a suspicious person acting erratically. Police found the wounded man on nearby College Avenue.

According to the press release, the shooting victim had been loudly banging on doors to several homes and was acting aggressively. “The male was described to be wearing only shoes and pants while attempting to strike people with a large umbrella,” the release said.

A homeowner in the area — after being confronted by the individual — fired one round to prevent being assaulted, police said. The unidentified victim was taken to to Sentara RMH and then flown to the University of Virginia Medical Center in Charlottesville. On Tuesday afternoon, police said the man was in critical condition.

Add umbrellas to the ever growing list of things not to bring to a gun fight. I can’t believe I just typed that, yet there it is.

Just because you open an umbrella so I can’t see you, doesn’t mean I can’t shoot you.
Thus demonstrating the difference between “concealment” and “cover”.
Thx, ‘Ed, for the object lesson.

Nothing gooder than a “Good Neighbor” that makes his boolit pierce a deserving dirtbag. Wonder if the dirtbag gave a piercing scream when the boolit made contact? Let’s be frank about when a boolit does pierce a dirtbag. A Presidential pardon for the shooter.

The umbrella didn’t stop the homeowner from raining on the nutjob’s parade.

I will resist til my last drop of blood.

My Mossy 88 is a real Maverick and will put any bad guy that comes into the danger zone on ice, man. I’ll never lose that lovin’ feelin’ for it and give it a goose on a daily basis.

My my my, Ms Sister Golden Hair Thang may be holding the plasticized abominations, but it would be no surprise that the blouse bunnies are real. Them boots were made for slogging.

It’s shocking that someone can just walk into Home Depot and purchase a patio umbrella with no background check.


In Texas, a mossy-horned longhorn steer was not to be taken lightly.
A Mossy-burg of any flavor is, likewise, not to be taken lightly.

Enforcing a restraining order with a lead punctuation mark will certainly get the point across.

Looking forward to AW1Ed’s forthcoming book Things Not To Bring To a Gunfight, with Illustrations From Real Life.
