Fort Wayne Intruder


” An attempted home invasion in Fort Wayne, Indiana late Sunday night had a deadly ending for the suspect, who was met at the door by an armed Vietnam vet.

It was just before midnight when the homeowner, who has not been identified, heard unfamiliar noises outside his front door. Spokesman for the Fort Wayne Police Department, Michael Joyner told reporters that whatever the noise was, it was enough for the homeowner to know that something wasn’t right.

The homeowner, who is in his 70s, grabbed his gun and went to see what the commotion was about. What he found was 33-year-old Ricardo M. Hood attempting to break into his home. At some point during the confrontation, the homeowner fired several shots at Hood.”
