Dupree Smith didn't go to work on Friday. You see, the Detroit Tigers won and secured their spot in the World Series Thursday night so Dupree stayed out partying and called in sick to work Friday morning.
So while Dupree was recovering from his night out on Friday he heard a noise in the back room of his house. A retired military veteran with tours in Iraq, Dupree grabbed his handgun to investigate. As he approached the rear of the room a window broke and a man tried to enter the house. Dupree fired at the man and the man ran away, getting into a Ford Ranger and leaving the scene.
