What happens when you wake up to the sound of broken glass and find someone crawling into your apartment through a window? If you’re armed, you do what a Hermitage, Tennessee man did.
Fifty-year-old Carlos Clark allegedly thought that breaking into a home where a man and his two-year-old son were sleeping would be a good way to appropriate some cash and/or loot. He thought wrong.
According to wkrn.com . . .
The victim reportedly woke up to the sound of glass breaking when he saw the intruder and shot him. Clark was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for his critical injuries.
Clark, by the way, had entered through the two-year-old’s bedroom.
The District Attorney’s Office has determined the victim was acting in self-defense and is not expected to face charges for the shooting.
You wouldn’t think so.
