Like a Good Neighbor... Senior Citizen Shoots, Wounds Assailant (Florida)

Just after 5p.m. Thursday (August 29th), dipshit Kevin Madigan subtly broke into an Oakland Park, Florida home by... smashing the front window of the house.

Hearing the commotion, a neighbor came outside and saw Madigan carrying goods out to his car so she used her cell phone to call 911 and give a description of Madigan and his vehicle. Madigan then attacked the woman trying to get to her phone (as if that would bring the 911 call back into his possession... moron).

As Madigan was attacking the woman, a 73-year-old retired teacher and neighbor saw the encounter and got involved. He drew his handgun and opened fire on the criminal, wounding him multiple times.

Madigan fled the scene but was found less than a mile away after crashing his car due to his wounds.

"It appears this was a justifiable shooting. Every indication is that the homeowner was defending himself, his property and his neighbor from being attacked by the intruder," said Sheriff's office spokesman Mike Jachles.
