    Police: Home Invasion Victim Shoots, Kills Intruder

    Police: Home Invasion Victim Shoots, Kills Intruder

    PHILADELPHIA -The victim of an early Sunday morning home invasion in Philadelphia shot at his intruders after a brief struggle, killing one of them, police said.
    The home invasion was reported shortly before 1 a.m. Sunday at a home on the 1400 block of South 6th Street.
    Police say 63-year-old Lee Heng told officers he had no choice but to open fire on two men who broke into his second story bathroom window around 1 a.m. Easter morning.
    Heng was sleeping inside with his two children when the suspects broke in.
    After a struggle with the two men, police say Heng got his gun and fired several shots, killing one of the suspects.
    Surveillance video obtained by FOX 29 News shows the second suspect running away from the scene.
    Police are still searching for the second suspect, who is described to be in his 30s with a medium build. Police say he was last seen wearing dark clothing.
    "They've been here for a while since we moved on the block," neighbor Chan Chenh told FOX 29's Chris O'Connell. "Humble people, very hard working. It's a shame for a store owner to go through that."
    The home invasion has the neighborhood talking.
    "It's safe," Rosanne LaMassa said. "I've been living around here for over 44 years, never had a problem. But things happen no matter where you at."
    The incident has at least one shop owner a block away from the shooting thinking about arming herself. She tells FOX 29 she now wants to get a gun.
    Under Pennsylvania's Castle Doctrine, Heng most likely will not be charged, since he was defending his property. Since the gun was inside of his home, he's not required to have a permit.
    Police have not released the identity of the suspect who was killed.

    Maybe if more stories like this come out of Filthadelphia, the rest of PA can run our state more effectively.

    We have very good firearms laws in PA, but not once you pass into the nether regions of Filthadelphia.

    This thug should have stayed at his own home. No more home invasions for him

    So while one of the criminals was rightfully stopped with a bullet, the homeowner just "barely" dodged a legal one. Really? The homeowner is "fortunate" to be able to hide behind "castle doctrine" because he apparently didn't have a "permission slip"? How about a great big "atta boy" for a man protecting his family instead of searching to see if he had appropriate paperwork or making sure that he was in a government-defined physical boundary in which self defense is permitted without such paperwork.

    Apparently criminals do not keep up on current events. Hey, Idiots who try to break into peoples homes while their family is sleeping.... you're going to get shot. There's more than one story per week in the news about this.

    Not quite sure what constitutes "very good firearms" laws....
    Seems to me that would be an oxymoron..

    Seems like even I need to be checked on occasion to keep from blathering the liberal rhetoric. Thanks for steering back to the truth. :)

    Maybe a better way of saying it is the laws on the books concerning firearms in PA aren't nearly as bad as some of our NE brethren states. ;)
