BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) A resident shot an alleged robber Tuesday morning in east Bakersfield, according to the Kern County Sheriff's Office.
The resident heard someone remove a screen and break a kitchen window to gain access to his home, so the resident armed himself with a handgun, the sheriff's office said.
The suspect and resident came face to face in the hallway of the East Brundage Lane home, and the resident shot the suspect at least twice in the upper body.
