According to officials at the scene, detectives believe a man and a woman tried to break into the home around 10 a.m. when the man was shot by the homeowner.
The man shot by the homeowner has been identified by the coroner as 31-year-old Jermoid Wheeler. The coroner was called to the scene and Wheeler was pronounced dead.
Deputies reported that the homeowner was sleeping when he heard a noise at his back door. He grabbed his gun and yelled at the intruder to stop multiple times as they tried to pry open the door.
The owner told deputies that Wheeler entered the house with a crowbar and was walking towards him when the man shot at Wheeler.
You live in the United States of America, more specifically the South. If a home owner tells you that he has a gun, be smart, believe him and leave before you become a bullet catcher. And yes, I understand that there are people out there that may fib and say they have a gun when they really don’t but, Do you feel lucky, punk?
