Right in the face!
Fox40.com reported that a Stockton, California, man, fearing for
his family's lives, shot a burglar in the face on June 3.
Twenty-three-year-old Yobenrico Well, the burglar, was arrested by
police shortly after the shooting. According to the news, the homeowner
heard some noise outside his window and grabbed his pistol. He witnessed
Well about to enter the window of his two-year-old daughter's
bedroom, and he ran into the room and waited near the window for the
intruder to make his way in. As soon as Well entered the room, the
homeowner fired, hitting Well in the face. Police said that Well
admitted trying to break into the house at the time he was shot in the
face, and also admitted that he had successfully broken into the same
house a few hours earlier. While the residents were gone previously,
Well had broken in through the same window and thoroughly enjoyed
himself. He ate their food, drank their liquor, played video games, and
even changed "their computer's screen saver to a picture of a
bunch of cheerleaders." When Hernandez and his family got home
around 10 p.m., the man was gone. Fearing he would come back, Hernandez
says he borrowed a gun from a friend, the same one he used when Well
came back around 3 am. the next morning.
