Home Intruder Shot And Killed By Homeowner In Kentucky

ASHLAND, KENTUCKY — A homeowner is said to have shot and killed a home intruder in the early morning hours on Saturday.

Troopers say Gregory W. Codington, 45, of Sarasota, Fl. was shot by the homeowner after he allegedly forced his way into the home and then got into a altercation with the homeowner. During that altercation, investigators say the homeowner fired several shots from a handgun, killing Coddington.

It seems that the home invasion was random and that Codington and the homeowner did not know each other.
