“Investigators said a man and woman were inside their apartment when they heard a knock on the door. When they went to answer it, they said a man armed with a pistol and wearing a mask barged in.” Just another night in Nashville? Maybe not, but the unidentified homeowner who opened the door and fought with with the intruder didn’t have to look far for his gun . . .
There was a brief altercation, and that’s when the man inside the apartment pulled out a gun and opened fire on the intruder, killing him.
The local 5-0 is trying to determine if there’s more than meets the eye here – as in why that particular apartment was targeted. Whatever the motive, it appears that Mr. Homeowner had a gun with him, either on his belt or in his pocket, when he went to the door. So we can sum up the moral of this little story in just two words: home carry.
