This case seems completely justified, at least to me. A California man who twice broke into his dad's former home was fatally shot by the new owners, authorities say
Apparently he couldn't accept the fact that he didn't own it. Or something.
The new owners bought the home recently.
While moving in on October 9, the new owners noticed Elizalde inside their home after he broke in through the side door, the news release said.
He made threats, but that wasn't enough for the judge to hold him, so he was let go.
He was released from jail and returned to the property just after 12 a.m. on October 10. The new owners told authorities Elizalde broke into the home by kicking through the front door before he attacked a male occupant who was sleeping in the living room, according to the Mercury News.
Authorities said the other owner, identified as another male, shot Elizalde in self-defense.
He died at the scene. Both residents of the home were taken to a local hospital for injuries.
The investigation continues, but self-defense is a human-right.
