black man in chicago uses his gun to protect himself from intruders

saw this on the news but no vid on youtube.


As the two intruders busted through the back door, the homeowner was ready for them.

"As soon as they tried to come through the kitchen, I stepped out and took a fire, took three shots, hit one of them," he says. "[They] scrambled like rats, scrambled like rats."

One burglar took a bullet in the buttocks and fled the scene. The other, 23-year-old Monte Potts, broke his leg trying to escape.

Potts was arrested on the scene and charged with one felony count of residential burglary, police said. He was being treated at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County.

The back door bears two bullet holes from the 380 semi-automatic that the homeowner used to defend himself. He said he deliberately did not shoot to kill.

A 19-year-old man matching the description of the second burglar later showed up at Saint Bernard Hospital and Health Care Center with a gunshot wound to the buttocks, and gave "inconsistent statements" about how he was shot, police said.

He was taken into custody and questioned, but later released. A police source said the homeowner was not able to positively identify the man as the second burglar, and polices are awaiting analysis of forensic evidence from the scene.

Potts, of the 5300 block of South Wolcott Avenue, was scheduled to appear in bond court Thursday, according to police.

As for the homeowner, who has been an armed security guard for 20 years, and his fiancee, they hope something good can come out of this, even for the suspects.

"Maybe this turn of events may change the path that they were on, because at least they'll have an opportunity to relive it, to live period," the homeowner's fiancee says. "Maybe this will give them a different outlook on life."

Who cares if he was a black man? What purpose does that serve by making it a main draw to this thread? He successfully defended himself from some would be intruders so why not leave it at that?

yeah ill have to agree with the last three post

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
