FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19)- A pair of home invasion suspects went running Saturday morning after shots that may have hit one of the suspects.
The homeowner on Franklin-Madison Road in Franklin Township tells FOX19 he was sleeping on the couch at 6:45 Saturday morning when he woke up to find a man holding a hand over his mouth and saying "don't talk; we just want your money."
A second man had gone upstairs where the man's wife and daughter were sleeping.
What the men didn't know was the homeowner was sleeping with his gun close by. He started fighting with the man who was holding him, grabbed a revolver, and fired it in his general direction. He believes he hit the man, because there were blood drops in the house, but it's possible that could be his own blood, because he was seriously scratched during the fight.
When the gun went off, the second suspect came running down the stairs and both of them fled.

Druggies go for the home invasion type of burglary.A good dog is the best first line of defense.
And that will become more and more true as more states allow CCW and greater ease of firearms ownership, and stories like this propagate.
More should end like this. The homeowner is safe and the criminals ran. I wish more people were armed.
Hopefully mama didn’t make him sleep on the couch last night.
Notice that the Corrupt Liberal Media provided no description of the dangerous home invaders who are at large other than they are male. Telling the public what race they are evidently is not considered to be politically correct. Black on white home invasions are epidemic compared to the reverse and the Corrupt Liberal Media tries to censor this fact at every opportunity.
Also, note that this media link uses a white perp in the file photo of a home invader.
Just another example of how “Liberalism” has killed journalism.
BTW, here is a link that documents the murder of over 600 white victims of home invasions by black thugs:
Those two sentences should make any man's sense of family security come to attention.
Are they sure it wasn’t IRS agents?
Wouldn’t have been the IRS. He would have woken up with one of them trying to pull out his gold teeth with pliers.
They should be shot after they are caught
A better ending would be the homeowners safe and unharmed but the attackers are dead!
I realize marksmanship is difficult when awakened suddenly.
