Around 10a.m. Monday, the Greenville County South Carolina Sheriffs department got a call from a local resident.
It seems the man had come home to see his house had been broken into and several items taken. As he looked though the house and came to his backyard he came across several people in his yard with the stolen goods. He told the thieves to stay there while he called 911.
At this point the thieves ran over to their car and attempted to run over the homeowner. Fearing for his life, the home owner drew his firearm and fired on the car. The criminals abandoned the vehicle at the end of the road. One of the thieves was found by deputies with K-9's while the other, who was wounded, was found later and taken for treatment of non-life-threatening wounds.
