79-Year Old Man Shoots Home Invader

An elderly North Carolina man shot a home invader after allegedly being assaulted.

According to FOX46, 79-year-old James Thomas Noah was at his apartment with 77-year-old Barbara Ella Melton when two burglars allegedly knocked on their door and eventually shoving their way inside the residence.

That’s when Noah was allegedly assaulted by one of the men and decided to get his handgun. Noah fired at one of the alleged burglars, 26-year-old Lourenco Marcus Reed, hitting him in the head.

Now, Reed remains in the hospital in critical condition.
