Print Friendly, PDF & Email

On May 16 at around 4 am a registered sex offender broke into a home and startled a woman who saw him in the kitchen.  She yelled for her husband who armed himself with a handgun.

The husband chased the invader throughout the house and fired twice.  The criminal was shot in the foot.  Jimmy Garrett, who was just released from prison less than a month earlier, was arrested after he was treated at a Talladega, Alabama hospital.

Talladega County Sheriff Jimmy Kilgore said the husband acted legally and “was a resident and he was protecting his home from an intruder.”  The perp was taken to the Talladega County Jail.

Once again a good guy with a gun stopped a crime and no one was killed.
