“KC homeowner shoots man who allegedly was stashing stolen items in his yard”
“The homeowner told police a neighbor rang his doorbell to tell him that a thief apparently was stealing pathway lights and outdoor furniture from two neighbors. The thief reportedly was placing the stolen items next to the homeowner’s house. The homeowner went inside and watched to see if the thief would return for the items.
A man appeared from behind a wall and started walking toward the house. The homeowner went outside and told the man to “get the (expletive) out of my yard!”
The man said, “I ain’t stole nothin’” then punched the homeowner. Afraid for his safety, the homeowner fired at the man, wounding him in the leg.”
