MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Call it a burglar's third strike.

Mr. Holloway who doesn't want his face shown, says enough is a enough. After a third burglary attempt on his home he said he took matters into his own hands. He says a male suspect rang his doorbell and didn't expect anyone to be at home.

"I proceeded to my doorbell. Once I got to the door I didn't see anybody. During that time, I looked over through the kitchen area, to my right, and I seen somebody trying to pry my window open. At the time, I seen two suspects with something in their hands trying to pry my window open. I yelled at them and as I yelled at them, they didn't seem to hear me. I proceeded back down the hall. I got my weapon and came back up and they still was prying and that's when I shot," Holloway said.

Holloway said the 17-year-old he shot in the back had a gun. He says after the first burglary attempt two years ago he bought a gun to protect his home and family.

"This is the third time. The first time, they broke in on my wife while she was at home and they ran out the house. The second time, they came into my bedroom window and you know it's just too much crime in this area and we're tired of it and we gone take our neighborhood back if we have to," Holloway said.

Holloway is sending a clear message to potential robbers to stay away or suffer the consequences.

Good story. Maybe if he had one of those “Protected by Smith and Wesson” signs, it would save ammo ;-)

Sometimes, I long for the days when we could take scalps and display them on an effigy pole at the entrance to the village. Would be molesters often decided to give a pass to a village with too many scalps displayed. Brave warriors often sought alliances with such villages and brought them gifts.

It would have been better if the homeowner had waited for both to get inside and then made sure they’d never victimize any one else again.

The concept that you eat the bear or the bear eats you is as old as humanity.
