The resident called police to report a man trying to break into her home in the 600 block of Wyandot Avenue shortly after midnight. The resident’s 36-year-old son struggled to keep the man from coming in the back door. The resident grabbed a handgun and gave it to her son, who shot the intruder, police say.

The two men continued to struggle and the son shoved the man out of the house and fired another shot. Police found the man in the backyard, where he was pronounced dead, police say.

The incident could end up resulting in no charges. Under Ohio’s Castle doctrine, homeowners may use deadly force to protect themselves against an intruder.
There shouldn't be any doubt whether the homeowner acted within the law. Hopefully the prosecutors agree, and that Ohio provides protection against civil suits by the criminal's family.
