The Hollis Police Department and paramedics discovered Buddy Driver, 50, dead with multiple gunshot wounds as he tried forcing his way into a home.
The homeowner shot Driver several times from inside his home, according to investigators.
No charges are known as agents with the OSBI have joined in the investigation.
What the homeowner was doing when the break-in was occurring was unknown, but it can be said he recognized the threat and was arguably more than prepared to end the threat.
It might sound more serious than we think with the OSBI joining the investigation, but hopefully, the homeowner will not face charges as the threat was seemingly imminent.
As a reminder, we should do our due diligence to check our state laws on what is considered a justifiable action of a self-defense shooting. A similar situation in another state might not consider the suspect here as serious as a threat.
Otherwise, on top of having a plan of defense, we should make sure our firearm(s) is accessible in a time of urgent need.
