In Tennessee, an armed homeowner shot and killed one of the two robbers who broke into his home.
An attempted robbery of a Tennessee home Wednesday night turned deadly when the homeowner fatally shot one of the alleged robbers, who was a convicted felon.
Terry Adams, Jr., 27, died Wednesday night in Nashville during a home invasion, the Metro Nashville Police Department said in a news release.
Adams, along with another robber who remains at large, allegedly entered the home of 43-year-old Brent Bishop through a back door and hit his wife in the face.
Bishop, according to police, saw the rear door was open and went to the kitchen, before then being “struck on the head with a blunt object.” The man was ordered to hand over “three long guns and a pistol” from a safe, which the robbers left with.
Looking for his wife — who had fled to a neighbor’s house — Bishop got a pistol from another room and went outside to look for her when he once again met Adams and his partner.
Police said that Bishop fired shots at the two, “fatally wounding Adams.” The second robber “dropped the long guns and the pistol that had been taken from the safe and ran away.”
This is an insane story. The fact that after being attacked and robbed Bishop was able to track down the robbers and stop the guns from getting into the wrong people’s hands is a great thing. This man is certainly a hero.
