ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) Investigators do not expect charges to be filed against a homeowner who shot and killed a burglar at his home Tuesday evening.
Officers responded to a call about a gunshot wound on Abbott Road just before 9 p.m., and Assistant Chief Jamie Smith said the homeowner made the call to report the shooting.
We are in the early stages of the investigation, but right now were treating it as a burglary and the homeowner defending his property, Smith said.
Investigators will present their findings to a grand jury but dont expect an indictment.
Your home is your castle, you can only retreat so far as your home, Smith said.
Im sure at the time he felt he was in danger so he took what action he thought he needed to take at the time to protect himself You can back away from anything but home is as far backwards as you can go. At what point do you leave your house to let them have it?
If thats even a question, and in my mind, it wouldnt be, he said.

Only half of SlowJoe's prescription.
He was saving one barrel for Biden.
I find Remington 1100’s attractive, as a design, should I ever get a shotgun, someday maybe.
