Cam Edwards giggled as he shared his "Headline of the Week" with his audience Friday night at NRANews.com. It comes from Indianapolis: "Homeowner Holds Burglar Hostage."
Understandably, while that headline remains on Google, WXIN (Fox 59) has changed the headline now to the more appropriate "Homeowner holds burglar until police arrive." The lesson is a gun owner beats a burglar with a screwdriver:
22 year-old Jorge Barrera now faces burglary charges.
According to police, Barrera entered the home on the southwest side of Indianapolis late last night armed with a screw driver.
When Barrera began looking around the house with a flashlight the homeowner grabbed his gun and fired a shot, striking a glass door.
When police arrived, they found the homeowner holding Barrerra at gunpoint.
He wasn't a hostage. He was simply caught red-handed.
