WW II Veteran Wards Off Three Home Invaders

Hearing a loud noise in his home about 1:30 AM, a Verona WW II veteran took up his .22 caliber rifle and awaited further developments. Hearing steps up his basement stairs, he got ready for trouble, which came the burglar kicked open his basement door. The homeowner fired one shot at the intruder in the doorway. The shot eventually killed him. The burglar’s two accomplices quickly retreated, taking their partner with them. They were arrested later when they called police to report a dead body, and their story explaining it fell apart under questioning. While the investigation continues, police are not expected to charge the homeowner, who was defending himself and his home.
