Upon arriving at the scene, Magen David Adom paramedics were forced to pronounce the death of one of the burglars, a man in his 30s, and evacuated the second wounded man, also in his 30s, to a nearby hospital.

Police stated that they received a distress call about a wounded burglar at about 9:30pm local time.”An initial questioning revealed that the owner of the house heard noises (in the room where the shooting took place), and when he entered the room (where the noises were coming from), he saw two suspects with burglary tools in their hands,” said the police, noting that he opened fire on the burglars in response.

    The homeowner needs to spend more time on the shooting range. One of them survived. Really, there is no excuse for failing to kill someone at such absurdly close range.

    Now, due to home owner’s lousy shooting, the State of Israel will spend thousands of shekels to give him medical treatment and thousands more to imprison him.

    Shame on the home owner.

      Shame on you for being so closed minded…and quick to judge.

      The home owner is an 82yr old Holocaust survivor.
      After killing the first, the second ran, but was still hit….’seriously injured’.
      Most, just pee in their pants. He kept a clear head.
