Shots fired after man challenges armed intruder


web posted November 14, 2009 10:57pm
COUNTY LINE – A man arriving home around 9:15 Saturday night said when he entered the home he found a black male with a ski mask armed with two pistols. After a short confrontation the two struggled and shots rang out once the men were outside the home. The homeowner told deputies he was sure the intruder was hit in the gunfire.

Deputies converged on the Our Road home to find the homeowner with blood on his shirt as he explained the incident. A search of the dirt road yielded no evidence of blood or shell casings. It is unknown at this writing if there was forced entry into the home.

The alleged intruder was struck in the leg and possibly in the chest area, according to his victim.  

The intruder was said to have fled the area in an unknown type vehicle. Area hospitals were notified to be on the alert for someone suffering a gunshot wound. 

A Crime Scene Investigator arrived shortly afterwards to take over the investigation. He cleared the scene around 10:33 pm.

No additional information was available.

UPDATE: Nov. 16, 2009
EdgefieldDaily.com has been unable to find any instance of a man shot twice being admitted to local hospitals.
