A State Street resident shot a man Sunday night who he said tried to force his way into his home north of LSU’s campus, city police said.

The unidentified intruder, in his 20s, knocked on the resident’s door at 514 E. State St. about 9:30 p.m., asking for someone who did not live there, said Sgt. Charles Armstrong, a spokesman for the Police Department.

An altercation erupted, ending with gunfire. The intruder, shot with the resident’s weapon, was taken to Baton Rouge General Medical Center-Mid City, where he is listed in serious condition, Armstrong said.

Further details were not available at press time Sunday.

He must have had his weapon handy at the door, unless they struggled inside the home for a bit.

"Intruder"?

Usually, it's "victim".

Motto of the story is the same as the motto of the Boy Scouts: "Be Prepared".

Actually, you might be surprised at the number of people who if they have pants on, they're armed".

Then again, maybe you wont... ;)

Agreed...sounds like a good result to me. I never answer the door at night unarmed.

"He must have had his weapon handy at the door, unless they struggled inside the home for a bit."

I've wondered where to keep my revolver. Usually it's by the bed (shotgun is in the closet).

The first thing an intruder would encounter is my pit bull, who's actually a sweet dog, but they wouldn't know that.
