The apparent home intruder who died Wednesday after being shot by the homeowner has been identified as Henry Thomas Johnson III, 37, of Helena.
Lewis and Clark County Coroner Mickey Nelson said Johnson died Wednesday from a single gunshot wound to the chest.
Patrol Capt. Jason Grimmis of the Lewis and Clark Sheriffs Office said dispatchers received a 911 call at about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday from the homeowner at 4276 Canyon Ferry Road, near the intersection with Ranger Drive.
The homeowner reported arriving home to find a suspicious car at the residence, and then entered the residence and encountered the intruder, Grimmis said.
The homeowner shot his gun and the intruder was hit, Grimmis said. The intruder was able to exit the home through a window and enter his Ford Taurus, and then crashed it into a fence on the property.
Grimmis said he anticipated a lengthy investigation of the scene. He said the homeowner was participating in the investigation.
That's the gun control I'm talking about!
Henry Thomas Johnson III
I died stupid.
Don’t let it happen to you.
I can find zero pictures of the decedent online. However, he did have an outstanding warrant from Helena Municipal Court, no mention for what.
Amen. That home owner had great control with that gun.
I love reading these type of news stories.
Ford Taurus kills driver!
Double tap, double tap.
