Tired of the recent string of break-ins in the area, the elderly Haynes decided to stay in that home and hand a little chime at the door in case anyone entered.
Haynes asleep in his home in Midfield, Alabama Monday night around 9:45 when the door chime woke him from his sleep. Haynes went to investigate... with his shotgun.
Haynes didn't see anyone until coming across a 34-year-old man ransacking his kitchen and refrigerator. That shotgun? It worked just fine as Haynes shot multiple times and the intruder died on the scene.
"I don't blame him for doing it. He was protecting his property, protecting his home, protecting himself," neighbor Eddie Alexander said.
