From the Montgomery Advertiser:

Suspected home invader critical after Elmore homeowner shoots him 4 times

Charles Virgil Bowne, 39, of Elmore County, was shot once in the head, shoulder, bicep and left leg, said Sheriff Bill Franklin. Bowne was taken by helicopter to a Montgomery hospital with life-threatening wounds, the sheriff said.

The incident occurred about 4:45 a.m. Monday in a home on Clemons Road in the Flatwood community.

Nothing good happens after midnight, “good time” resets at 6:00 a.m.

This is the statement from Sheriff Bill Franklin:

“I got a young couple in their 20s; daddy, momma and a young child at home when daddy hears a commotion in the front of the house,” Franklin said. “He arms himself with a 9 mm handgun and goes to investigate. He sees Mr. Bowne standing in the living room and Mr. Bowne tells him ‘Give me you (stuff).’ Mr. Bowne then makes a move like he’s going into his front pocket and the homeowner fires several times.

“There was evidence of forced entry into the home. We searched Mr. Bowne and didn’t find a weapon, but we did find a crack pipe tucked into his sock.”

Seems like a good shoot to me.

To add to the orgy of evidence that this was a good shoot, Bowne had broken into another home at 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

“Mr. Bowne was lucky he wasn’t shot Sunday morning.”

More words of wisdom from a down-home country Sheriff.

The homeowner was not charged by police.  The law requires that the shooting goes to a grand jury, but the Sheriff believes they will not return an indictment.

If I know anything about Alabama, you can put money on that.

“A crackhead breaking into a house on Sunday and gets runoff.  Then does it again Monday and gets shot.  Good thing that man shot him before he broke into my house and I’d have to shoot him.  No charge.”
