A Darlington, South Carolina man was asleep in his home Friday morning when he heard a loud bang at the back door. That noise woke him up and caused him to arm himself.
We now know that loud bang was a home invader trying to kick in the back door. Unable to get the door open, the criminal made his was around to the front door. The homeowner was already there.
As the criminal kicked in the front door the homeowner opened fire striking his leg and buttocks. The wounded man ran to a SUV with two other men in it and drove off.
Deputies pulled over the SUV and transported the wounded man to the hospital while placing the other two men, Rakeem Bruce and Daquam James, under arrest for Burglary.
