A homeowner shot and killed a burglar Sunday inside a Near Northside home, police said.

Wilbur Carson, 61, shot and killed intruder Wilbur Copeland, 42, in a home in the 3100 block of North Park Avenue at 11:27 p.m., Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Sgt. Matthew Mount said.

The intruder entered Carsonís home through an upstairs window, Mount said. Carson confronted the burglar and fired a .22-caliber rifle.

Copeland, 3300 block of North Park, died of a gunshot to the chest, according to the Marion County coronerís office. Copeland was not armed, Mount said.

Carson has not been arrested.

Does one have to be named Wilbur before you allowed to move into that neighborhood?

Julia (Carson)is probably just MORTIFIED that another "Carson" migh have had a GUN & used it for lawful self defense!

That is, except for one of her corrupt, criminal grandkids that she schmoozes onto some LE agency .... like the Excise Police! Hmmm

While that's a valid point, it was a rifle. That long barrel adds quite a bit of velocity.

The only .22 caliber weapon I'd feel comfortable defending my home with comes with 30-round magazines, black furniture, and Sarah Brady's complete disapproval. :supergrin:

Placement is everything. I have heard of people being killed with the old brass BB type of gun. All depends on where you hit them.

If this is the same guy on the news, he threatened to cut a reporter with a "switchblade" and the intruder was his "drinking buddy".

Just from the interview, he is not the kind of guy we want to be holding up as a fine example.

That being said, if he was robbing his house, he deserved to get shot.
