” Chehalis, Wash – A man who broke into an occupied home early Sunday in Chehalis was shot by the home’s owner, the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office says.
Deputies arrived at the home shortly before 5 a.m. to find one man with a gunshot wound.
Deputies say a 51-year-old man broke into the home where a 24-year-old man and his wife were sleeping. The owner called 911, then armed himself with a pistol while waiting for deputies to arrive.”
” The homeowner called 911 then armed himself with a pistol while waiting for deputies to respond, said Chief Deputy Stacy Brown of the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office.
As the homeowner was waiting, the intruder burst into the home and started down the hallway toward the homeowner, who was standing in front of his bedroom door to protect his wife.
The homeowner warned the intruder to stop, but the intruder charged at the homeowner instead, Brown said.
The homeowner fired one shot, hitting the intruder. But the suspect kept coming and tackled the homeowner. The two fought and then the homeowner was able to break free, holding the intruder at gunpoint until deputies arrived about 20 minutes after receiving the 911 call.
An investigation revealed that the suspect, later identified as Brian L. Creed, 51, of Chehalis, had recently moved into a nearby house off of Nix Road, Brown said. He admitted to deputies that he had used methamphetamine earlier in the day.”
