A 51-year-old homeowner was found shot in the torso after law enforcement responded to reports of a burglary in progress. A Greensboro attorney at our law firm was advised that his security system gave him an alert that someone was on his property.
Our lawyer in Greensboro was told the man went outside to check to see what was going on. The person that was on his property produced a firearm and shot him one time. According to our Greensboro personal injury lawyer his injury is considered non-life threatening. He is currently in stable condition and expected to make a full recovery.
In speaking with a Greensboro criminal lawyer, it would appear the suspect could face assault with a deadly weapon with the intent to kill charges, and firearm by felon charges, if a convicted felon.
It’s a tough situation. It’s normal to want to check on things and not alert the police when you see suspicious activity, however, as this instance shows us, calling the police before leaving your house could very well save your life or prevent a serious personal injury.
