23 year old Orion Alonso was shitfaced and thought he was at his own house in Bozeman, Montana. Of course, he thought he was locked out of his house so he was banging on the doors and windows.
In reality, Alonso was at the home of 74-year-old Carl Craft. Carl heard the banging, called 911, and grabbed a firearm to see what was going on. Confronted with an angry, violent, and very drunk attacker trying to break down the door, Carl fired a shot into the door.
Carl missed the intruder but he did manage to hit his own hand.
This shot did not scare off Alonso who continued pounding on the door until police arrived on the scene and arrested him.
Was it poor training? An adrenaline dump from the stress? And elderly man who was scared? Or just bad luck?
