A local homeowner fought back when a burglar entered his home on Spurlington Road and threatened to harm him on Saturday night.
A criminal news release from the Taylor County Sheriff’s Office states that the burglar, Steven Christopher Followell of Hodgenville, Ky., was shot by the homeowner during the course of the crime.
Officers responded to the incident just before midnight.
Detective Brian Pickard, who is leading the investigation, said Followell was “definitely under the influence of alcohol, we could smell it on him.”
