According to LaPorte County Sheriff Mike Mollenhauer, a middle-aged renter called 911 just after 9 a.m. saying he'd shot an intruder. Police arrived at the extremely rural home to find a man in his 20s shot dead.
Investigators have learned that the person in the home was awakened to the sound of breaking glass. He armed himself with a pistol and found the intruder in his home, according to police.
Police say the suspect was armed with a hatchet and after a fight the suspect was shot by the renter.

That sentence just seems strange to me. If somebody breaks into my house armed with a hatchet, unless something has gone terribly wrong there the assailant will have been shot before any opportunity for a fight is allowed to take place.
When a person knows you are home and enters your home, you have to assume he will try to kill you if caught.
Do unto others as they would do unto you, only do it first.
No, the suspect resides in the morgue.
I can’t believe no one has said it yet, so I will. This chump brought a hatchet to a gun fight, and lost.
” Do unto others as they would do unto you, only do it first.”
BEFORE they do unto you.
. Never mind.
They don’t give a description of the Renter. But the suspect was White.
Well hopefully he didn’t follow him before he shot him otherwise that would make him out to be a racist murderer.
your first sentence would make an excellent tagline.
Yeah : )
Never bring a hatchet to a gunfight.
Shoot first, axe questions later!
Just think, if this had happened in NYC or Chicago, we’d have headlines reading “Axe Murderer on the Loose” .... local media calls for confiscation of all axes and hatchets.
Only if he had just bought some candy.
