STONEVILLE, N.C. -- Rockingham County Sheriff's Office deputies are investigating after a homeowner shot at a suspect during a home invasion early Saturday morning.
Rita and Christopher Shelton told deputies they awoke after they heard their dog barking at their home on Anglin Mill Road. Christopher grabbed his shotgun and confronted an intruder in the den area of the home.
Christopher told deputies he fired a shot at the intruder who was armed with a hammer. He said the intruder fled the home and yelled to another subject outside to get in the car.

Shotgun or hammer, who is deadliest warrior....?
Break into a home with a hammer; get Zimmermaned.
Miss with a shotgun? Someone needs practice.
No evidence of a miss. Probably loaded with birdshot.
My Remington 12 gage is loaded with 00 buck. I expect a bloody mess to have to clean up.
Why is it that militarized police have much looser “rules of engagement” than our soldiers actively chasing down terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan?
For example: soldiers have to keep their rifles pointed down towards the ground, while SWAT members keep their rifles pointed at men, women, and children, even lying on the floor; when an accidental discharge occurs ... oops!
Soldiers who kill a civilian are subjected to military courts, while a SWAT member will probably not be charged, and there may not even be a coronor’s inquest.
Conclusion: American citizens are treated worse by their police than terrorists by the Army.
