And maybe he thought that Kentucky was New Jersey. Accused burglar shot by homeowner in northern Franklin County.
Franklin County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home on Whiteoak Drive, near Owenton Road, at 1:27 a.m. Saturday after the residents heard someone in the basement. According to dispatch records, the homeowner confronted the person in the basement and shot him once.
Deputies said there was “significant damage” to an exterior basement door, according to the arrest citation.
He refused to give his name, but police identified him eventually.
The investigation is ongoing, but self-defense is a human-right.
