    Michigan resident holds intruder at gunpoint until police arrive

    Imagine pulling into your driveway, opening the garage door and finding a stranger inside.
    Thatís the situation a Wyandotte woman found herself in, but the intruder soon found himself in an even more precarious position.
    The incident occurred at approximately 4:30 p.m. Dec. 5, in the 1200 block of Sixth Street. The woman told police she was running errands and upon returning home and opening the garage door, found a stranger sitting inside.
    She immediately went into her house and told her husband an intruder was in the garage. Her husband ran out with a gun, pointed it at the 39-year-old Lincoln Park man, and called police.
    ďDonít you move until the police arrive!Ē the resident reportedly yelled at the intruder.

    That couple did everything wrong, and could have been killed.

    They should have ran to their safe room until the police arrived, which only takes about 9-10 minutes.

    Very foolish.

    The intruder had gained access through an unlocked side door to the garage.

    What is perplexing is that she opened the garage door and then ran inside the house to tell husband who got his gun out and ran out to the garage and the intruder is still sitting there.

    He must have been high as a kite.

    Waiting to see how many folks like this post, not understanding the sarcasm.

    Holding someone at gun point is a legal and security can of worms.

    If you have a gun or just a plain old baseball bat and you disturb an intruder on/in your property, your first motivation is to make him/her leave. Nothing else.

    Hope I never have to hold an intruder at gunpoint would be scary. But if I do I'll post pics here first.

    Yes but generally not a good idea in a burglary situation unless the intruder is significantly weaker than you.


    If he's a reasonably fit man in his 20's, I'd want him to leave and so should you.
